NYC Vietnam Veterans Memorial Relighting Ceremony

Footage from last night's beautiful relighting ceremony of our Vietnam Veterans Memorial in downtown NYC.

On May 4, 1985, Mayor Edward I. Koch dedicated this plaza in honor of the 250,000 men and women of New York City who served in the United States armed forces from 1964 to 1975, especially those 1,741 who died fighting the Vietnam War. Learn about about the memorial here
