In May of 1987, the North Carolina Vietnam Memorial Committee along with members of North Carolina Vietnam Veterans, Inc., N.C.V.V.,I, dedicated the Vietnam Memorial at Capital Square in downtown Raleigh. At that time, N.C.V.V.,I. started to conduct a ceremony to remember the men from North Carolina still unaccounted from the war in Southeast Asia. That reading then became a command performance that is reenacted each month on the first Saturday at Noon.

    At the end of the Vietnam War, there were 65 of our brothers from North Carolina missing. Over the years, 24 of our brothers have been returned with 41 honored each month.

    Below are the lists of our returned brothers and those still not returned. First, are returned followed by the unreturned.
