Biographical / Historical

Victor 'Doc' Westphall began constructing the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at Angel Fire, New Mexico in 1968 in memory of his son David Westphall, a United States Marine who was killed in an ambush at Con Thien on 22 May 1968. The Vietnam Veterans Peace and Brotherhood Chapel was dedicated on 22 May 1971. It was deeded to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) in 1982 and named the DAV Vietnam Veterans National Memorial and then donated back to Victor Westphall and the David Westphall Foundation in 1998. The Ownership was later transferred to the State of New Mexico and was then dedicated as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park on 11 November 2005. Victor Westphall passed away on 22 July 2003.
