Vietnam Veterans Monument to be Dedicated at Omaha National Cemetery

September 12, 2018 - 3:47pm

The Omaha National Cemetery’s first monument is dedicated to Vietnam veterans. It will be unveiled Friday as part of a ceremony that includes a keynote given by Under Secretary of Memorial Affairs Randy Reeves.

The Omaha National Cemetery is a newly-opened facility that also includes a memorial walkway. The Vietnam Veterans monument was donated by the Vietnam Veterans of America Omaha chapter 279.

Director of the cemetery Cindy Van Bibber said the monument will benefit the public in many ways.

“I think just having another area to come and pay your respects to the veterans here at the national shrine that is here in Omaha National Cemetery is something that benefits the public. It’s not only for education for the younger generation, but just to come and pay our respects to those that have served,” Van Bibber said.

The ceremony takes place at the Omaha National Cemetery Friday, September 14, at 2:30 pm. The event is open to the public.
