Vietnam Veterans Memorial Dedication
Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 472 recently installed and dedicated a memorial at Miramar National Cemetery that honors the men and women of the Vietnam War. During the sixteen years of combat action, over 2.7 million military men and women served, and more than 58,000 personnel were killed, as well as the 300,000 who were wounded. This memorial will remember their service and sacrifice.
Did you know that Miramar National Cemetery is the only National Cemetery with an Avenue of Flags? Just inside the entrance to the cemetery, it is hard to miss the 50 American Flags flying proudly day and night. The Support Foundation is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the flags, poles, lanyards, and lighting. Twice a year, just prior to Memorial Day and Veterans Day, the Support Foundation uses donated funds to replace all 50 American Flags.
