“So Sad and yet So Impressive”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

We have seen it on TV-in books- etc., but to be able to find our lost classmates names engraved on the wall brings everything to a finalization of what we lost and gained during that time.

“Vietnam Memorial”
Reviewed October 9, 2011

The wall is a solemn area along the National Mall that should be visited to remember the sacrifices of those who served and died. There were flowers and trinkets placed up against the wall. It was an emotional experience for us.

A complicated war is memorialized by a simple site. the housands of names engraved almost brings a tear to your eye. Just thinking of all the sacrifice makes it a must visit attraction alone.

“Profound.”
Reviewed September 29, 2011

Who knew polished black granite could be so physically and conceptually profound?
Let yourself linger here, and you will not forget your visit.
