Last month, Commander John Horl and Vice Commander David Legg, members of the American Legion Post 168 of Red Bank, presented a $10,000 check to Bill Linderman, NJVVMF executive director, for the ongoing support of the foundation.

The donation ensures that the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial, built to serve as a lasting tribute to those who served our country, is properly maintained, keeping the memories of our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines alive forever in the hearts and minds of every New Jersey citizen.

“This generous donation allows the foundation to continue to provide top-quality programs at the Vietnam Era Museum & Educational Center in Holmdel,” Lindeman said. “These programs include field-trip programs for more than 9,000 regional students each year, lectures and ceremonies. It validates the foundation’s mission to leave a legacy for future generations so that they will learn the valuable lessons of our involvement in Vietnam.”

The New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial, dedicated May 7, 1995, strives to encourage and foster patriotism and provide for recognition of the sacrifices, courage and valor of the New Jersey veterans of the Vietnam era. The Vietnam Era Museum & Educational Center, dedicated in September 1998, aims to encourage and foster a thorough understanding of the Vietnam era, including the political, historical, social, cultural and military aspects that affected the United States, especially New Jersey.
