How to submit photos

You can submit a photo two ways. If you have a digital copy, you can upload the photo at http://vvmf.org/submit_other.

You can also mail a copy of the photo. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund does not want original photos and cannot be responsible for returning photos. When having the photo copied, ask the photo professional to make it the highest quality possible, use a glossy finish and reproduce the photo at an 8 x 10 size, if possible.

Be sure to include the photo submission form (found at the above website), and please indicate on the front of the envelope that a photo is enclosed. Mail to:

Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund

Attn: Call for Photos

2600 Virginia Avenue, NW, Suite 104

Washington, D.C. 20037

For more information about how to add a photograph to the collection, please contact the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund at (202) 393-0090.
