20th Anniversary of California Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Thousands of Vietnam veterans from around California made their way to Sacramento on Saturday, December 14, to attend the 20th Anniversary celebration of the California Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Located in the heart of downtown Sacramento, the memorial stands as a tribute to the men and women of the Golden State who served their country in Southeast Asia. Following a parade through the city to the state capitol, the day’s festivities centered on the memorial grounds where speakers, including many veterans and author Joe Galloway, paid tribute to those who served. Archivist Amy Hooker and oral historian Kelly Crager represented the Vietnam Center and Archive at this event.
