The monument commemorates Port Augusta Servicemen who died in service or were killed in action in the Vietnam War.  The monument lists the grave location of each of the servicemen.  A plaque also pays tribute to the wife of Corporal Allen Graham who died by her own hand after learning of his death in Vietnam.

Australia's military involvement in the Vietnam War began with the arrival of the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) in South Vietnam during July and August 1962.  Australia's participation in the war was formally declared at an end when the Governor-General issued a proclamation on 11 January 1973.

However, the end-date of Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War has officially been amended to 29 April 1975 to reflect Australia’s further involvement in the war during the fall of Saigon in 1975.  The Department of Veterans Affairs and the Australian War Memorial, in Canberra now recognise this new date.
