As a Vietnam Veteran, this place has always had special meaning to me everytime I visit. The simplicity of its design is part of the attraction in my mind. It is worth the visit.

First, look at the laminated books and you can find people's names listed alphabetically here which will show you where to look for their name on the wall.

Very poignant, flowers laid at the wall and people making imprints of names. It's nice to visit and pay your respects to these men.

I enjoyed visiting here and looking up a name of my dad's buddy killed in action. It was very quiet, everyone was respectful. The dusk lighting made it all the more serious. It is great to remember those who fell trying to make Vietnam free. Thanks to them there is more freedom there than before the war. Too bad it cost so many lives.
