I have never been to a Memorial with power like the Vietnam Memorial, doesn't seem like much but it just does something to you. it's a must if you are visiting DC.

It's hard not to tear up when you walk past the Vietnam Veterans Memorial when you know every engraved name was someone's son or husband, daughter or wife. Thanks to all who served especially those who sacrificed their lives.

This is such an important memorial, but as with the others, you really need a guide (or excellent guide book) to understand its symbolism. Like the war itself, it was designed to be a scar on the earth. If you pay attention, you can see where soldiers designated as MIA have been changed to deceased, from a cross to a diamond. Very moving.

In its simplicity it expresses what a lot of the other monuments fail to do. Everyone is quiet going thro this one.

A moving tribute to the memory of those lost in the Vietnam War. As you walk along, you see the names etched into the wall, it hits you that they were someone’s son, daughter, father, mother and it hits you, especially when you see someone rubbing over a name. A place to be respectful, unfortunately, during our visit, there were a few people who were not acting the way that they should. Definitely worth a visit.
