National Infantry Museum Honors Warriors Remembered

The National Infantry Museum has selected four lines from the poem Warriors Remembered for their Vietnam Veterans Memorial replica of The Wall. The National Infantry Museum (NIM) located just outside Ft Benning, GA will dedicate a Vietnam Memorial replica of The Wall this Friday morning, 21 March at 10:00 AM. The 2/3 sized replica donated by Dignity Memorial was previously their traveling wall. Three granite panels will guard the entrance to The Wall and NIM has chosen to inscribe on one panel four lines from the poem Warriors Remembered to honor those whose engraved names tell of that war’s sacrifice. “Some volunteered; others came when summoned. All made the choice standing straight to face the call. We heard the call; we answered with our service. We paid the price for others. Let them remember.” Warriors Remembered continues to be the Thank You for Your Service and the Welcome Home that many Vietnam veterans never received.

13 Years to Remember 50 Years Ago

The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, established last year under the Department of Defense, has begun activities to remember the 50th anniversary of events of the Vietnam War.  This effort, which kick off with the Memorial Day Ceremony at The Wall, will last for 13 years until 2025 marking the end to America’s longest war.  Stay tuned to Warriors Remembered as we remember significant events in this 13 year history.

Warriors Remembered to be quoted at The Wall on Memorial Day.

The Vietnam War 50th Anniversary Commemoration kicks off its 13-year program this Memorial Day at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.  The ceremony begins at 1:00 PM Eastern Time and will be broadcast nationally on C-SPAN, FOX, and other networks.  Among the materials submitted to the White House for President Obama’s main address were the last four lines of the poem Warriors Remembered found on page 82 and the inside cover of the book and the link to the Warriors Remembered website . 

            This poem stanza will also be printed on the back cover of the ceremony program as a consise statement of why our Nation needs this Commemoration.  It is a great honor for Warriors Remembered to be able to contribute to the beginning of this much needed program.

              It mattered not what politicians argued.

             It mattered not what history would reveal.

             We had no expectation but to serve where duty called us.

             We asked for no reward except a Nation’s thanks.

              Take time this Memorial Day to remember our fallen brothers.
