Vietnam Veterans Memorial

The main part of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial is the Memorial Wall, which is sunk into the ground. As you walk down the ramp along the Wall, you will see the names of the servicemen and women on the wall who were either killed in action or missing in action. It is quite sobering to see all of the names. Quite often we will see notes, flowers or little gifts left along the side of the wall.

Also part of the Memorial is a bronze statute of three young servicemen and a Vietnam Women’s Memorial.
