The new Vietnam Veterans Memorial will be unveiled May 30.

The Vietnam Veterans of America Treasure Valley chapter is raising money to build a new memorial in Boise. It will be made of the same material used for the Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington D.C.-India Black Granite.

When completed the memorial will be etched with the names of the 217 Idahoans who perished in the Vietnam War. It will be unveiled on Monday, May 30 at Veteran's Park in Boise.

Engraved bricks are being sold to raise money; these will be placed near the memorial. If you'd like to purchase a brick or make a donation, call 208-391-0868.
