The Vietnam War, a conflict America inherited from the French, cost America 58,209 lives over the decade 1965-75 and embroiled the nation in controversy that still reverberates today. In the spring of 1984, a small group of Philadelphian Vietnam Veterans launched a campaign to honor the more than 600 young men killed in the war. Following a city ordinance authorizing the establishment of the Philadelphia Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, a site was selected at Front and Spruce streets over appropriately enough Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway (I-95). PVVMF’s mission is to honor and remember the fallen heroes of the Vietnam War.
