To many that served their nation, especially those who sacrificed their lives, were disrespected. This wall is so powerful, so magnetic and so beautiful but it only starts to heal the psychological wounds that were inflicted. As one gazes on the to many rows of...More

You cannot visit DC without a trip to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. All the names of the fallen really stop and make you think about how big of an impact this war had on America.

I didn't expect the magnitude of emotion that washed over me while visiting the memorial. Thank you to all our Vietnam service members.

One of the many memorials not to be missed in DC. There were SO many people there the day we were, so I felt like I couldn’t take my time. However, it was still moving.

I have seen more memorials that moved me more than this one but this is a must see if you're walking around the "mall". It honestly takes about 5 minutes to see (but you can spend as much time as you like or need here)....More

A very simple, yet moving memorial to the veterans of Vietnam. Seeing all of the names of the veterans on such a large wall reminds us of what the cost of war really is.

Everyone should visit. It is sad, but makes you feel very proud that these men have protected our country.

The entire memorial is every name of those who perished over the course of the war. It’s so moving to see all these names listed on the wall, names that matter to many. A must see.
