A reflective slab made of black stone that holds the name of all the men and women who lost their lives during the Vietnam sits in the National Mall area of Washington D.C. It is surrounded by several other important memorials in Washington D.C.
There are also statues depicting the unfortunate scenes from the terrible war. Built by the community that still maintains it, this isn’t a usual tourist site but a place of remembrance. The simple and yet very striking memorial forces you to think about the cost of war. Several people who went missing or were held as prisoners of war and were never found have also been honoured here. The gravity of the place is sure to strike anyone who visits it.

Another touching monument along The Mall is that of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. During my last visit in May 2016, I enjoyed seeing the monument in front of the row of trees flush with green, a benefit of visiting during the warmer months of the year. This is a good time of year to take photographs of this particular monument. I've always been impressed with the simplicity of this monument, being two walls set at an angle cut into the ground. It is a respectable yet haunting design and leaves you with deep impressions, regardless if you know veterans or victims of this most tragic war. In addition to seeing the list of soldiers killed in battle during the Vietnam War engraved along this monument walls, there is also a statue of three soldiers in combat gear that you can see nearby. This is worth seeing. Also worth taking time to visit is the Vietnam Women's Memorial, which commemorates the 265,000 woman that served during that period. This monument is just a couple minutes walk east. Note: The Vietnam Veterans Memorial can be quite crowded due to its importance as well as it proximity to other famous and popular memorials nearby. If you want unobstructed photographs or more peaceful, quiet visits, it is best to visit very early in the morning, just after daybreak. At this time, you can view prior to the large crowds arriving.
Prepare to shed tears at this memorial. The gravity of the Vietnam War is not truly understood until you see all the names etched for eternity on this wall. There are pencils and paper to make copies of names on the wall.
One of the best memorials on the planet. Something that every citizen of this country should experience at least once in their life.
So many names, so many emotions. This is a memorial that pretty much anyone from the Vietnam War era will find very emotional. A very sacred memorial dedicated to so many who gave their lives. Very tough to describe how I feel each time I have been here. A must visit memorial no matter how many times you go to this area, even if only to pay your respects.
Very moving experience. It's great that they have the books available there so you will be able to find the name you are looking for.
