The number of names on this wall paints an emotional picture of the state of the nation at that time, and humbles you to think of so many that were lost. How many families left behind picking up the pieces of their broken lives?

Even though I did not have a "name to look for" on the marble...I wanted to touch all of them with respect and sorrow.

I always wanted to see and visit DC for this reason. I finally made it! So honored and so overwhelming. Very Beautiful. Thank you all servicemen and women! My heart goes out to all of you who lost their lives and their families.

Been here several times before but this was the first time here after dark. Trust me when I say it is even more somber after dark, as if the souls of the names are there too.

Very emotional and moving memorial. Difficult but important to visit. It is eerie how the atmosphere at the memorial is different.
