A must see in DC. A humbling reminder of the numerous sacrifices that have been made for our freedoms. Freedom truly isn't free.

A chance for a bit of family & US history education for the 10 yr old family member. Like many of the DC monuments, the physical monument is the catalyst for a discussion about a more abstract concepts - freedom, service, sacrifice.

Wasn't sure how I would feel - but happy we went - war is never good - but to remember all our brave men and women who served was a tribute to courage.

This is a solemn place. Too many heroes names are on the wall. It's hard to visit. To shed a tear 😢 is expected.

Wish I saw this at night. It is beautiful. There were hundreds of people viewing the memorial at the same time so it was hard to appreciate the enormity of the lives lost.

Doing the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, and Washington Monument are staples when visiting DC. Also have to get to Arlington National Cemetery.

There are so many must see monuments in Washington DC. It was great to be able to pay respect to those that gave all for our country. Everyone should stop and pay respect here.

Very moving Memorial to see. My son (9) had trouble keeping his attention but quite quick to walk through. Several people available to help you with locating a specific name on the wall if needed.

Off the top of my head, the Smithsonian stop puts you out right in the middle of the national mall, so you'd still have a bit of a walk. Not too far though.

A 91 yr old vet friend would like me to be his escort on an honor flight. I am an 80 yr old woman ( not a vet). What would be the requirements for me to do this?

I think your vet friend needs to fill out an application at the honor flight website. I believe the guardians/escorts are volunteers or staff members of honor flight and anyone accompanying the veteran would have to pay for... More

I stayed at the Monaco Hotel, and walked everywhere--It could not have been more convenient....well, maybe with the exception of the Lincoln Bedroom.
