Veterans Attend Dedication of the Vietnam War Memorial Ca. 1982
Part 1Unknown - 1982
The dedication of the national Vietnam War Memorial in 1982 drew large crowds of veterans whose lives were still affected by their service. Vietnam veterans, unlike those who returned from World War II or the Korean War, did not receive a large public demonstration of support. This, and the desire of many to heal the rifts in the country between those who supported and opposed the war, helped inspire the construction of the memorial within 10 years after close of the war.
