Jan C. Scruggs, of the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial Fund:"The plaque is
a magnificent addition to the Memorial and further tells the
story of those heroes and their families who were forever changed
by the Vietnam War."
Diane Carlson Evans, of the Women's Memorial: "The In Memory Plaque will shed light on the
aftermath of war and bring the human tragedy more visibly into
the public eye. With the dedication of a plaque at the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial, perhaps we will learn that the sacrifice of the men
and women who serve during wartime does not end when the
war is over."
Ruth Coder Fitzgerald, of the In Memory
Plaque Project: "We are pleased
with the progress made to date with the In Memory Plaque and
look forward to the day that those veterans who died prematurely
because of their service in the Vietnam War will be honored at
the Vietnam Veterans Memorial."
