The Memorial is located at the Naval Amphibious Base, Coronado, CA. It honors all Navy and Coast Guard personnel who died in the Vietnam theater of operations during the period 1960-1975. The Memorial Wall pays tribute to 2,564 sailors who died. The Memorial wall presents the names, rank/rate, home town, unit(s) to which they were attached and the date of their death.
The Memorial was formally dedicated on 21 May 2005.
The Gamewardens of Vietnam, the Mobile Riverine Force Association and the Swift Boat Sailors Association support the VUMM by sponsoring the display of an actual PBR (Patrol Boat River - Task Force 116), a CCB (Command and Communications Boat - Task Force 117 - River Assault Groups) and a PCF (Patrol Craft Fast - Swift Boat - Task Force 115 ) as an integral part of the memorial.
