The Vietnam Veterans Memorial (The Wall) in Washington, D.C. was dedicated on Nov. 13, 1982. Shortly thereafter, visitors to the memorial began leaving items in memoriam to those killed and to missing service members listed on The Wall. Tributes to the Fallen presents a small sampling of the more than 400,000 objects that have been left at the memorial wall and that now make up the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Collection. Today, this collection is held in the public trust by the National Park Service and is among the largest and most actively researched collections in the Washington, D.C. area.
