35th Donald W Jones Flag Memorial presented by Delaware Valley Vietnam Veterans An inspirational display of over 65,000 American Flags in the shape and size of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, DC. Each flag representing an American.

We originally focused on the Vietnam Era but have since moved to recognize all Veterans and POW/MIA's. There is a second memorial representing present the most recent conflicts. The main task is the placement of flags in a large diamond-like shape. We setup the outline and the flags are placed inside with a black field in the center representing those still unaccounted for.
