Items Left at The Wall - The Virtual Collection

Since the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (The Wall) was dedicated in November 1982, more than 400,000 items have been left by visitors as remembrances and tributes. The National Park Service collects, catalogs, and preserves these objects as part of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial collection, with curatorial support from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund.

These are the curatorial records of a small portion of the items that have been left at The Wall over the years, but this is the largest collection of items left at The Wall ever made available to the public. Once the Education Center is funded and constructed, approximately 4,000-6,000 items will be on public display.
