Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So very glad that I was able to spend time visiting this Memorial. This particular Memorial, and the Korean War Memorial are my favorites to visit for reflection of those who sacrificed so much for our freedom.

A memorial to all the very many men that died in Vietnam. So sad to see such a pointless loss of life.

Walking by this wall and remembering all of my classmates that did not make it home from this war was very emotional. So glad we spent time here.

This was my first time at the memorial. I located the name of the MIA bracelet that I have worn for over 30 years. This place will place you in a state of awe as you walk the length of the wall and see the 58,000 plus names. Do not miss on a visit to DC.

What can I say?

It is a black wall with too many names inscribed to it, somber, yes, but underwhelming.

I had long wanted to visit this memorial and finally made it. I thought at first, just looking at the long strip of marble from quite a distance, it was too simple. As I slowly walked closer, I began to feel the enormity of it growing, in size and power. Finally within arms reach, I could feel the sadness and loss ovewhelming me.

Seeing a loved one's name on this wall was an emotional experience. So many made the ultimate sacrifice. It's still painful. Don't miss this memorial.

A fitting tribute to the US military personnel that lost their lives in this war. The order of the names on the wall was quite confusing, there did not seem to be any real order.
