The Greater Rochester Vietnam Veterans Memorial

This beautiful memorial commemorates the service, valor, and sacrifice of more than 28,000 Vietnam Veterans from our region as well as the 280 men who gave the ultimate sacrifice. 

The memorial also provides an opportunity for learning, remembering, and peaceful reflection, with the intent of educating future generations about the war.

Conveniently located in Highland Park, this meaningful tribute is endorsed and supported by the Monroe County Legislature, Monroe County Department of Parks and Chapter 20 of the Vietnam Veterans of America.
