Approximately two linear feet of audio tapes, video tapes, DVDs, newsletters and periodicals, photographs, stickers, internet printouts, newspaper clippings and articles, correspondence, administrative documents, transcripts, statements for H.R. 3293, and other documents and reports detail the Vietnam War In Memory Memorial, a grassroots project dedicated to placing a commemorative plaque at the National Vietnam Veterans Memorial honoring veterans who died after the war as a result of their service, including those who developed cancer due to Agent Orange exposure, suicide due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and various other maladies. The correspondence section is broken up into the following sections: Vietnam War In Memory Memorial, Inc., Congressional (1955-1999), Commission of Fine Arts (1995-1996), Fallen Warriors Foundation, and correspondence with Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt, Jr. and actor Gary Sinise. Most materials are in good condition.
