Honor Our Fallen Volunteers

The goal of Honor Our Fallen has struck a chord with the members of the 589th Engineer Battalion Association – Vietnam.  In addition to locating men who served with the 589th in Vietnam and providing them an opportunity to reunite with the brothers they served with, the purpose of the Association is to commemorate the memory of 589th Engineer Battalion soldiers who gave their lives in the service of our country.

It is with pride and respect for the sacrifices made that the following members of the Association dedicate a portion of their Memorial Day weekend to visit the gravesite of each of the 26 soldiers the 589th Engineers lost in Vietnam.  Not only do these volunteers give of their time, but they also donate their expenses.  As part of the program, attempts are made to coordinate the gravesite visits with relatives of our lost brothers to further the notion that these men and the sacrifice they made will never be forgotten. While at the gravesite, a short message is offered, a prayer is given, and a bouquet of flowers is placed on the grave.   

While time has taken a toll on the number of volunteers, these men have made a pledge to find ways to continue to honor those who died for their country in Vietnam.  Let them never be forgotten.
