The bricks are standard size building brick and will be placed in a special area of the gardens. They can be engraved with up to three lines of engraving with up to 15 characters per line.
You will receive a return e-mail from the Friends of the Museum to collect your engraving request.
The museum grounds will contain six memorial gardens honoring Vietnam veterans and units. Throughout the gardens will be engraved bricks and tablets bearing the names of those who served as well as other memorials. Whether you were Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine; whether you were American, Vietnamese, or Allied serviceman, or involved in the Vietnam era, you can be a part of these memorial gardens and leave a lasting memory of your Vietnam service or that of a fallen comrade, or family member. Your tax deductible brick purchase will be used to help build and maintain this museum which will be the first in the nation focusing on the Vietnam experience.
Museum Memorial Bricks may be purchased by anyone, veteran, or non veteran, or organization. For example, some flight class members have gotten together and purchased a brick to recognize their flight class and some unit members have done the same to recognize their unit. Some service members have purchased bricks honoring their spouses or parents.
