Thousands of visitors who attended the 2017 MCAS Miramar Air Show, the largest military air show in the nation, were able to pay respect to the military men and women on The Mobile Vietnam Memorial Wall.  In support of the air

show theme “A Salute to Vietnam Veterans”, the AV Wall was displayed in the Expo building behind a white picket fence.  The 50th Commemoration Team and the MCCS Team partnered with The AV Wall to present Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pins to thousands of veterans in two emotional ceremonies each day of the show.

2017 Wall Additions and Updates Are Complete

In August, 2017, Signs + Designs of Palmdale completed the additions of three names and five status updates on The Mobile Vietnam Memorial Wall. These updates are issued by the Department of Defense each year in May.  They are engraved on The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.  a few weeks before Memorial Day.

The new additions bring the total number of names on the Wall to 58, 318.

We are grateful to Signs + Designs for keeping our memorial up-to-date and accurate.
