FACTS ABOUT THE VIETNAM VETERANS

MEMORIAL

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial was conceived by Jan Scruggs. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, Inc., was incorporated on April 27, 1979 in Washington, D.C., by a group of Vietnam veterans: Jan Scruggs, President of VVMF; Robert Doubek, Project Director and later as Executive Director; John Wheeler, Chairman of the Board. They lobbied Congress for a two-acres plot of land in Constituti on Gardens. Significant support came from Senator Charles Mathias, Jr., of Maryland and Senator John Warner of Virginia. On July 1, 1980 President Jimmy Carter signed the legislation to provide a site in Constitution Gardens near the Lincoln Memorial. It was a three and a half year task to build the Memorial and to orchestrate a celebration, under the direction of Sandie Fauriol, to salute those who served in Vietnam. The Memorial wall was designed by Maya Ying Lin and was dedicated on November 13, 1982. The sculpture created by Frederick Hart called "The Three Servicemen" was unveiled on November 8, 1984. In 1986 Vietnam nurse Diane Evans began the task of adding a statue to the site, recognizing the women who served in Vietnam. The statue, sculpted by Glenna Goodacre, was dedicated on November 11, 1992.
