The Memorial was dedicated in 1971 and was the first major Vietnam memorial in the United States. In 1987 Congress recognized the site as a memorial of national significance. Our visitor center features educational exhibits. The grounds are a peaceful and beautiful backdrop for the Chapel.

This is a must see. Absolutely beautiful. Take a moment to visit and remember. Our kids - 6 and 8 loved it and we had the opportunity to have a quick discussion around the Vietnam War.

Beautiful tribute, but every service mentioned except National Guard is absent even in the gift shop which has many caps, emblems, etc from every other service

Very humbling experience. Visit every time I am in the Enchanted Circle area. They have a great audio visual area that gets you in the feels. Nice gift shop and the lady running it is super nice and informative.

This Memorial is one of the many gems you will find on the Enchanted Circle. It was created by a father that lost his son in the Vietnam war. Take your handkerchief!
