Those who fought in Vietnam are part of us, part of our history.
They reflected the best in us. No number of wreaths, no amount of music
and memorializing will ever do them justice but it is good for us
that we honor them and their sacrifice. And it's good that we do it in the
reflected glow of the enduring symbols of our Republic. President Ronald Reagan Remarks at Dedication Ceremonies for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Statue Forgotten Warriors ... Forgotten Valor ... Forgotten Honor
