The Mission:
The life-size bronze sculpture of the Three Servicemen was dedicated Veterans Day, 1984. Representing a young Caucasian, an African-American and a Hispanic, sculptor Frederick Hart says his goal was to create a moving evocation of the experience and service of the Vietnam veteran. He has described it as follows: “They wear the uniform and carry the equipment of war; they are young. The contrast between the innocence of their youth and the weapons of war underscores the poignancy of their sacrifice. There is about them the physical contact and sense of unity that bespeaks the bonds of love and sacrifice that is the nature of men at war...Their strength and their vulnerability are both evident.”

 The largest number of surviving veterans are from our nation’s longest-running war. They served in faith and were bereft of the honor, recognition and gratitude that other veterans received and it is only now that they are slowly being recognized for what they selflessly gave. They did not lose the war but lost the will of the country while they served. It was a thankless task that they undertook and because of that, those still serving and those who back them state: “Commit the Country, Before Committing the Armed Forces Again.” Now their wounds are slowly being healed; history should reflect on what they went through and what they truly deserved.

        Now you can express your support of our Vietnam veterans with a beautifully-crafted plaque of the Three Servicemen and the words “America’s Unsung Heroes in Vietnam. A one-hand-tied-behind-the-back fight. They deserved better than they got.” With the name of the serviceman or woman, or other wording, optionally custom-engraved, the plaques are available in gleaming black granite (from the same region in Bangalore, India as the Wall) on a matching granite or polished-teak base, or etched on our exquisite beveled-glass free-standing curve. And a portion of the proceeds go to the various programs of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund.
