More than $60,000 has been raised to repair scratches made by vandals on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, thanks to the efforts of veterans organizations and radio stations nationwide, a fund-raising official said.

"People have been exceedingly generous," Jan Scruggs, founder and president of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, said.Scruggs, whose struggle to get the memorial built will be portrayed Sunday in the NBC-TV movie "To Heal A Nation," said he was surprised that so many people were interested in contributing money to repair the memorial, which has become the most heavily visited monument in Washington since it was dedicated six years ago.
