IN MEMORIAM:   The Joint Armed Forces Color Guard from the Military District of Washington standing tall on Memorial Day at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., May 29, 2023.    [On the cover]

DREAMS AND VISIONS: Harvey Pratt, the renowned artist and sculptor who created the striking National Native American Veterans Memorial at the Smithsonian’s Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., discusses his Vietnam War service, his forensic work with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, his artwork, and the story behind the memorial.

MAINTAINING THE MEMORY:  The long history of the evolution of the In Memory Plaque at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and how VVA and AVVA have worked for many years on the new In Memory Honor Roll that ensures that those whose names are not on The Wall are not forgotten.

ROLLING ON IN THE MOTOR CITY: How Chapter 9 rose from humble beginnings to become a fixture in downtown Detroit and the focal point for all activity there for veterans, a reliable resource for veterans and their families, and a solid community partner for city of Detroit and the state of Michigan.
