About

The New Jersey Vietnam Veterans' Memorial and Vietnam Era Educational Center are looking for volunteer tour guides. Who are a Vietnam Veteran. We are asking our Vietnam Veterans for help in educating the students of New Jersey. Volunteer tour guides are crucial participants in our tours. All of the factual information provided to the students during their visit is enhanced by your personal story. The students want to hear your experiences to make the history come alive. Typical questions include:

  • How old were you when you went to Vietnam?
  • Did you want to go?
  • What did you do in Vietnam?
  • What do you remember most?
These questions often take a conversation into a dozen different directions. When asked what they remember most about their tour, 99% of the students say it was the Vietnam Veteran who took the time to share his/her story.

Tours are scheduled Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. There are usually two time slots, 9:30 -11:00 AM and 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. We even give you 30 minutes between tours to catch your breath.
