Overview

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.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is outstanding. To think that this was privately funded by the father of a fallen soldier is remarkable. This is a must visit.

I visited the memorial not expecting to feel a certain solitude walking around. It's very well done and gives you a feeling of reverence and respect to those who gave their lives.

Visit to honor those who served and died. Very well done although sad, because the family who created this memorial lost a son in Vietnam. Don't miss this.

Dedicated to those who served in the Vietnam conflict, the memorial provides a fitting tribute with memorabilia and photos. Do not miss the narrated film.

We visited the Memorial. It was emotional to see all the names of lost servicemen. The exhibit is very well done. Lots of information. Very well worth visiting.

I would liken this to visiting Pearl Harbor-somber, reflective and a way to honor those who gave their life for our freedom. It is very well laid out and is a peaceful place. The museum is thorough with memorabilia and a film.

There is a visitor's center/museum, gift shop, chapel, helicopter, and numerous park benches from which to view the surrounding area. The parking lot is adequate, and the landscaping is very well done and maintained. A very impressive sight. Not like any Vietnam memorials I have...More
