We Remember - Red Poppy

They shall not grow old,
As we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them,

At the going down of the sun
and in the morning.
We will remember them.

The Canadian Vietnam Veterans Wall is a travelling wall and its home-base is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Purpose of The Memorial Wall

- HONOR the Canadians who followed their conscience and fought for freedom in the Vietnam War.

- EDUCATE and raise public awareness of Canadians participation in the Vietnam War.

- STIMULATE the spirit of patriotism in Canada.

  • The design was the idea of Doug Anderson, program director of the Fargo Air Museum. The wall is in the shape of the Canadian flag, to reflect the heritage of those who gave their lives.

  • It is 6' high and 12' wide. The Memorial is a "moving wall", consisting of six panels that make up the flag, and a separate elevated maple leaf that affixes to the center of the wall.

  • The Wall is made of thin aluminum, formed and welded together and filled with Styrofoam insulation. The panels were powder coated for durability.

  • The names of 149 Canadians confirmed killed in the Vietnam War serving with the US Armed Forces are inscribed on the wall, including the 7 "Missing in Action".

  • Names are listed chronologically. The names of two Canadian military personnel killed in action and two missing in action in Vietnam while serving with International Control Security Commission are listed separately. ( * Denotes Canadians who served with the I.C.C. )

Canadians in The Vietnam War

  • During the cold war, the Canadian military stood shoulder to shoulder with American and West European forces as a deterrent to communist forces in that part of the world. From 1961 to 1975, the United States of America fought "communist aggression" in South-East Asia.

  • While Canada was not officially involved in the Vietnam War due to their commitments to the ICSC, thousands of Canadians who felt the cause was right, crossed over the border and joined the the United States Armed Forces. Others who were working in the U.S.A. were drafted. An estimated 12,000 served in the Vietnam War because of ideological and moral support of the American war effort.

  • The coalition of Canadian Vietnam Veterans Association was formed in 1986. The C.V.V.A. is dedicated to assist and support Vietnam War era veterans and their families and to perpetuate the memory and deeds of the fallen.
