The stone to be placed during the ceremony.

John Shafer is pleased to report the Vietnam Helicopter Pilot and Crewmember Monument Dedication Ceremony is scheduled on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, at 4:00 PM in the Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) Memorial Amphitheater and the post-ceremony reception at the Women In Military Service For America Memorial located near the cemetery entrance. We anticipate strong attendance.


We have just seen the stone to be placed during the ceremony.

For advanced planning, it would be wise to arrive at the cemetery at least one to two hours early, as Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) requires all visitors to go through a simple security screening process and the distance to the Memorial Amphitheater is some distance from the entrance. We are negotiating for bus transportation from the visitors center, but the bus is somewhat small and we anticipate a waiting line as the ceremony time approaches.
Please contact  Bob Hesselbein, Chairman Legacy Committee
Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association for more details.

  1. Do you have any further info on the dedication ceremony – will Veterans need tickets to attend? I want to make sure my dad is in attendance. Thank you!
