If you are in the Penn's Landing area, check out this memorial. These hero definitely deserve our respect. The memorial is well maintained.

This memorial was on my must see list. I took lots of pictures to show my veteran friends. It’s very sobering, inspiring and beautiful. The marble is shiny and glistening. There was a light rain which I think was part of the aura.

It's a nice place to see while in Philadelphia. It's a wall that remembers those that fought in the war. Very honorable.

One of the better Vietnam Veteran's Memorials in the country. Well thought and well maintained. The names of the service members from Philadelphia are carved into the walls. It is well lit at night so an evening visit is doable.

We visited the memorial as part of a walk along Penns landing. We passed through Spruce park with everyone enjoying the festivities to this quiet area. Such a contrast to the list of names of young people who died so far away

A cement monument showing the thousands of Americans who died during the Vietnam War. How many of these people were willing to sacrifice their lives and how many were not?
