The 2008 National Defense Authorization Act authorized the Secretary of Defense to conduct a program to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. The commemorative program includes activities and ceremonies to achieve the following objectives:

  1. To thank and honor veterans of the Vietnam War, including personnel who were held as prisoners of war (POW), or listed as missing in action (MIA), for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the United States and to thank and honor the families of these veterans.
  2. To highlight the service of the Armed Forces during the Vietnam War and the contributions of Federal agencies and governmental and non-governmental organizations that served with, or in support of, the Armed Forces.
  3. To pay tribute to the contributions made on the home front by the people of the United States during the Vietnam War.
  4. To highlight the advances in technology, science, and medicine related to military research conducted during the Vietnam War.
  5. To recognize the contributions and sacrifices made by the allies of the United States during the Vietnam War.

VVA Chapter 392 is proud to be a commemorative partner in this program.

Oregon Memorial Traveling Wall

VVA Chapter 805 (Roseburg, Oregon) built the Oregon Memorial Traveling Wall from donations by Oregonians given on behalf of thier fallen loved ones. The memorial is shaped in the likeness of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C., with the center panels in black containing the names of those lost in Vietnam and on the USS Pueblo.  There are panels on both sides in a sandstone color with the names of those lost in Panama, the bombing of Beirut, Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom, and Enduring Freedom. This is a living Memorial that will annually be updated with the names of our fallen in any future conflict.

The Traveling Wall is comprised of six 8 foot panels and is designed to be broken down and transported in a striking 8’ x 20’ red, white, and blue trailer. The trailer graphics are unmistakable outlining the purpose of the memorial to honor our fallen, give a healing opportunity to our communities and to teach our youth.

As our communities come together to offer support and comfort to veterans, their families, and the families of those that have given so much for our freedom we now have this traveling memorial to help with their journey. In a continuing efforts to educate, a scholarship program for veterans has been established and is funded by the donations collected at the Traveling Wall. 

If you would like to have the Traveling Wall come to your city, contact Mr. Terry Mooney, VVA Chapter 805 President at 541-817-7646. Thank you VVA 805 for your service to America!
