A picture of U.S. Army Corporal Jeffrey Dennis Straface who died serving in Vietnam in 1968, left at the base of Memorial Wall, at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C, on November 10. The Washington Monument can be seen the background.
Thousands of items have been left at the Vietnam Memorial in D.C since it was built in 1982. The items are collected and then transferred to the NPS Museum and Resource Center, which catalogs and stores all items except perishable organic matter, like flowers. They have been exhibited at the Smithsonian Institute in past years.
Names are still being added - six were added last year. You can find names, or browse on the wall's website. You can donate to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial fund here, and find out more about the ceremony they will be holding today.
Have you been to this memorial in D.C.? Do you have a Vietnam memorial in your city?
