Volunteer

Wall Guards

If you wish to volunteer to monitor the wall please register here instead of using the volunteer form below.

The Wall Guard’s most important role is to be present and aware of what’s happening at the Wall.  Visitors to the Wall may have lost friends or family and the Wall Guards will help ensure that all visitors show respect worthy of the sacrifice of those whose names are etched on the wall.  In addition, Wall Guards should provide help to anyone needing assistance such as those in wheelchairs or help with an etching of a name.   Please review the Wall etiquette prior to arriving at the memorial.

Event Volunteers

We are looking for individual and group volunteers to help manage the October 5–8, 2017 event activities, chaperone veteran families, look up memorial name locations at the computer station, event setup and disassembly, and assist with parking and crowd management. Please let us know you are interested by completing the form below. The event volunteer chair will be in touch with you with additional details.
