The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) holds a Christmas Tree Ceremony at The Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington DC each December. The event is open to the public. Each year, volunteers bring a tree to The Wall and decorate it with handmade ornaments and messages from school children around the country. See the following photos of the Vietnam Memorial Christmas Tree and learn more about this special tradition.

The tree is on display throughout Christmas week each year.
