Thanks to supporters of Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF), 14 American servicemen had their names engraved on the black granite walls of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 2014, and the status designations for eight others whose names are already on The Wall were changed. Each spring, VVMF works with the Department of Defense (DOD) to ensure that The Wall is accurate. When MIAs are recovered in Vietnam or when an appeal has been approved for addition to The Wall, VVMF makes the appropriate changes. Name additions have met the Department of Defense criteria for addition to The Wall, having sustained wounds in Vietnam from which they eventually perished.
