facial expressions on soldiers is surreal -well laid out- easily spent a half hours just trying to understand what our war veterans went through

Brilliantly maintained and beautiful to look at. People of Washington keep it live by leaving fresh flowers in the memory of the soliers who lost their lives in this war.

Visit the Memorial after dark and the area is well lit and the statures look alive.

everything is so lifelike, its heart wrenching. It is giving you the impression of how tired the soldiers looked, trudging through the humid jungle, and at the back of this tableau, was a dark grey wall, with shadows of different soldiers faces.
