This is so over welming there is so much here to take in and appreciate . There are so many stories to learn from Tour Guides here.
Our tour guide TIm from Walk of Town told us whole history of the memorial from the concept of Jan Scruggs and design of Maya Kim. Every detail was thoughtfully and carefully planned. It is very moving to see and touch.
A very emotionally moving place. I had more than one friend who's name was on the wall. It made me think of the good times we shared when we were young.

An outstanding memorial made all the more poignant as veterans were there when we visited. Such a sad waste of lives on both sides men, women and children.

Seeing the wall of names really does bring war home to you. A simple memorial but every effective and unusually in chronological date order. There are over 58,000 names with symbols of crosses or diamonds denoting killed or missing.
