Dear Supporter,

Your interest and commitment to the Vietnam Memorial means a great deal to me. And also to the many people “healed” by The Wall each year.

Because of this, I thought you would enjoy owning and displaying our exclusive 2011 commemorative calendar. It’s an inspiring daily reminder of the many ways you help us here at the Vietnam Memorial. And with a tax-deductible gift of $50, $75, $100 or more, I’ll send the 2011 VVMF Calendar to you right away.

It’s a striking full-color calendar. When opened, it’s 10.5″x16.5″ in size. Each month features a striking photo of The Wall, plus a photo and corresponding remembrance of a brave veteran.

Our commemorative calendar will remind you of all you’ve helped us accomplish in 2010:

– Repairs to the base of the flagpole bearing the military branch emblems; and the five Directories of Names were replaced

– An intensive restoration of The Three Servicemen statue. It looks brand new once again!

– The grass surrounding The Wall was brought back to a soothing and peaceful field of green with aeration, seeding, and a new irrigation system
