This is certainly a must see when visiting DC. It's an easy walk from the Washington Monument and right across the street from The Lincoln Memorial.

I had a hometown man that was killed in Vietnam. The book by the entrance to the memorial made it easy to find his name. Very moving to see not only his name but so many others who lost their lives. Lovely tribute to fallen heroes.

There is something profound about this memorial. It seems understated, but as you walk in the wall keeps going and going. Name after name after name. If you are visiting the Mall this is one memorial you cannot miss. It is within easy walking distance from the Lincoln Memorial.

Hard to put into words the uniqueness of this monument. Hidden from the street / city, you can't see it. The wall is hidden and appears to just be a continuous, grassy hill that meanders as a park from The Lincoln Memorial all the way down to The Washington Monument. ( It's to the NW side of The Lincoln Memorial. ) Parking was not difficult on the street at this time of year. Definitely worth the effort. Don't miss the 2 statues close by that are very life like soldiers. One is dedicated to the women that served, the other are 3 male soldiers found near the flagpole.

If you look at this memorial in the context of the lives lost overseas, it is very sobering. Each one of the names was part of a bigger family and their lives were ended prematurely. Was the loss of life worth it? You decide as you walk among the names of those lost and imagine them as people not just a name on the wall.
