“Twice yearly homage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

For me as a Viet Nam combat veteran, it's been a Healing Wall. My buddies and I meet at the Statue of the 3 Soldiers before walking down to the apex of The Wall to place our unit's wreath and remember our fallen brothers.

“Important part of history for Americans”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

I agree that the memorial is very moving but it's nothing spectacular. Its symbolism is without the doubt great but, from tourist point, you can skip it!

“Very emotional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

The wall is an emotional experience, but it was disappointing that the books to look up a name were in such dis-array.

“REVERENCE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

We have been to the "wall" many times to be close to those who gave their lives for our freedom. We bring all our out of town guests here to experience the feelings that come forward in this special display.

“Moving and intense!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

Great memorial, with all the names of the Vietnam Vets etched in marble. You'll find a lot vet's around the memorial, looking for names of comrades and also laying wreathes near the memorial. Well worth the look.
