Dignity Memorial® Vietnam Wall
The Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall is a three-quarter-scale traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. We're proud to display the exhibit from Friday, September 16 through Sunday, September 18 at Resthaven Cemetery, located at 801 19th Street in West Des Moines.

Free and open to the public 24 hours a day, the replica is eight feet high and 240 feet long. Its black, reflective surface is inscribed with the names of more than 58,000 servicemen and women who died or are missing in Vietnam. Paper and pencils will be provided so visitors can make rubbings of names etched on the wall.

Created by the Dignity Memorial network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers in 1990, the Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall is dedicated to all Americans who served in Vietnam and honors all veterans of the U.S. military. Click here for our Schedule of Events.
