Dear Mr. Obernesser:

The staff of the Commission of Fine Arts has reviewed the final design for the replacement “In Memory” plaque at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial with a cast bronze tablet mounted on a low stone base to improve its visibility and address maintenance concerns. The final design conforms to the Commission’s previous recommendations, and the staff has no objections to the design as submitted.

With the authority delegated by the Commission at its meeting of 16 February 2017, we approve the final designs for the project, as documented in the drawings and materials received and dated 7 June 2018. If there are any additional changes, please contact the staff to determine if additional review will be required. For our project file, please forward a half-size set of the final construction drawing when available. As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions.
