It's very difficult to describe the emotional effect the Vietnam Memorial has. Some of my school friends served, one's name is engraved on the wall. The first time I visited there were a school group who were boisterous as they started , but within minutes they were as quiet with looks of puzzlement on their faces. I think they were realizing what war really costs. The Lincoln Memorial also seems to inspire solemnity. I've been back a few more time and the emotional and sad as the first time. There is only one other place that can evoke these feeling and that is Pompeii. It took me a long time to be able to think about the visit without a profound feeling of sadness.
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is one of the most personal and touching memorials on the National Mall because so many veterans are still alive. Many make the trek to DC to see the war heroes they knew etched into the wall. They take paper and make sketches of their names and leave flowers and gifts along the memorial. If you're into photography, you can see the reflection of the Washington Monument in the wall. It's worth a visit if you're in DC!
It's an honor to have the opportunity to visit the Wall. This was my 2nd time visiting. My father served in the Vietnam War. Grandma said that he was never the same, but he was able to come home. While visiting the wall we saw several Vietnam Veterans that were there visiting too! I was very homie. Thank You Veterans for your service.
Such a powerful place to experience again. Makes war time so personal for all. Wonderful for me as an OIF veteran to come to a place like this a see and hear the respect not only for the monument but for the men and women who serviced.
Incredibly solemn place. Never fails to bring tears to my eyes. Whether it is from the wall, itself, or items left behind by loved-ones and strangers alike.
