Long Description:
The Memorial has sections in English and Vietnamese and has portraits etched on its center. The English portion reads:

"This Memorial Wall honors the great
sacrifices of millions of citizens of the
Republic of South Vietnam in defending
liberty during the Vietnam War from 1950
to 1975.

Hundreds of thousands of military personnel,
civilians, government cadres and officials
died on battlefields or Communist prisons.
Hundreds more chose to kill themselves
rather than surrender.

On this Memorial Wall are portraits of seven
Vietnamese heroes who took their own lives
or were executed by the Communists. These
noble deaths epitomize the patriotism and the
indomitable spirit of the Armed Forces of the
Republic of Vietnam.

This Memorial Wall bears witness to the fall
of South Vietnam, April 30, 1975.

History Park, City of San Jose, - April 2014."
