The excerpts etched into the New York Vietnam Veterans Memorial were chosen from letters, diary entries, and poems written by Americans during the Vietnam Era, which were submitted to the New York Vietnam Veterans Memorial Commission. These quotes are supplemented by news dispatches and public statements about the war. It is fitting that the Memorial is located one block east of Fraunces Tavern, where George Washington bade farewell to his officers at the end of the Revolutionary War.
