A fund raising drive has been launched to repair cracks in the granite and mortar of the Vietnam Memorial in the Buffalo and Erie County Naval and Servicemen’s Park on the Buffalo Waterfront in connection with the 30th anniversary of the unveiling of the monument.

Funds can be sent, in any amount, to the Vietnam Monument Restoration Fund at 135 Harding Road, Buffalo, N.Y. 14220, according to Stephen T. Banko III, one of the Vietnam veterans involved in the preparation for the summertime celebration.
