Vietnam Women's Memorial, Washington D. C. Reviews
One of the many interesting monuments to see while visiting The Mall in D.C. is the Vietnam Women's Memorial, situated just a few minutes walk east of the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial. This monument designed by American sculptor, Glenna Goodacre and dedicated in 1993 to the women who served during the Vietnam War, most of whom were nurses during the conflict. It is of three female serviceman, one of which is tending to a fallen soldier. It is a nice sculpture that can be viewed from all sides to gain full perspective of the image being portrayed. Note: There are park benches on three sides of the monument and a information panel if you want to learn more about this particular memorial. In the end, if you are exploring The Mall and wanting to view the various memorials and other monuments, this is an interesting one to find. You can comfortably see this one in 5-10 minutes before or after visiting the nearby Vietnam Veteran's Memorial.
Very beautiful sculpture. As you walk around it each angle communicates the unique experiences of women at war: fear, compassion, bravery and determination.
Though I am a man who was born 9 years after the end of the war this sculpture speaks to me as a fellow nurse. She has captured that thin line between hope and despair that so many nurses operate in during difficult situations. I have visited many times and I am always humbled and proud of the contributions of my fellow nurses during conflict.
The Vietnam Veterans Women's Memorial serves to remind that women also served in the Vietnam War.
