This is a tremendously solemn site, but extremely tastefully done and a great tribute.

“So Beautiful, but Sad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

It breaks my heart to see people crying in front of a loved ones name, however, it may be healing for them...Either way, I walked through and found the memorial to be simple, but powerful. It is a short walk from Lincoln Memorial and worth the time spent to get there.

“a nice place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

The concept of including the names of all the men and woman who have dies during the war was a surprise. The memorial is in a good location to visit on a nice day.

“Moving experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

situated near the Lincoln Memorial, this memorial draws a large crowd. If you are looking to locate a specific person's name, it helps to have the number of the tablet they are listed on. If if you are not looking for anyone in particular, this wall will make you realize how many of our young people lost their lives during this period of time.
