“Moving Experience”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

This monument was heartfelt since it was my generation's conflict. People left all types of mementos at the base; letters, pictures, hats, flags. Everything is being kept for future expansion. I was there both during the day solo and at night on a tour. Guides are very knowledgeable and give you more information than you would be able to get on your own. My tour guide told us of a personal experience that she observed of a vet and is fallen buddy.

“A must see”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

I have always thought this memorial to be haunting, yet beautiful. It should be viewed both during the day and at night.

“Very touching”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

This is worth seeing, very touching seeing all those names, and the large number of people who are there remembering a loved one who was lost in this unnecessary "conflict".

“Somber Experience”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The Memorial consists of the wall and two statues (one to nurses and one to the men who served). The wall was as expected - very sad to see all the names of those who went missing, taken prisoner, or died. Flowers and mini USA flags were found along the wall.

“Reflections”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

A moving, well thought memorial to those killed or missing in this war. A good guide is invaluable to give the background and insight which makes the differences between seeing something and understanding it.
