Vietnam Veterans Memorial

The purpose of the David Westphall Veterans Foundation is to honor America's veterans and members of its military forces by memorializing the sacrifices they have made and by recognizing the sense of duty and the courage they have displayed as they answered their country's call to arms.

This purpose is achieved primarily by supporting the mission of the the Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park. The park provides a memorial to veterans and a Visitors Center that serve as a place for reunion, reflection, healing, and sharing of experiences.

The memorial was originally known as the Vietnam Veterans Peace and Brotherhood Chapel and had its origins in a battle near Con Thien, South Vietnam in which 16 men lost their lives. Among the men, was David Westphall, son of Victor and Jeanne Westphall. Thanks to their vision and determination the memorial exists today to honor not only these 16 Marines but all members of America's armed forces.
