Another 93 names were added to the Honor Roll, bringing the total to 2,064 since the program btarted in 1993. They are honored with a plaque near the Three Servicemen statue.

Many of those honored on Monday were victims of exposure to Agent Orange or post-traumatic stress disorder.

Families wishing to have a loved one considered for the In Memory Honor Roll can get more information at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund Web site.
