The purpose of The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is to honor America's veterans and members of its military forces by memorializing the sacrifices they have made and by recognizing the sense of duty and the courage they have displayed as they answered their country's call to arms. Fulfillment of this purpose also results in educating present and future generations about the dangers to which free societies are exposed, the responsibilities inherent in citizenship, and the enormous costs of freedom. Because Americans will have to pay the price of freedom for generations to come, the Foundation's objective is to be progressive and dynamic as it fulfills its purpose to honor past, current, and future generations of military service members.
