As the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund and our nation commemorate The Wall's 20th Anniversary, it is important to pause and reflect as every name inscribed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial is read aloud. Each of those names was a young man or woman who died in the prime of their life, fighting for the principles of freedom and democracy that continue to make our country the greatest in the world."
