Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Washington D.C.: 95 reviews and 196 photos
I had visited this marvellous memorial on another occasion but unfortunatly my visit was cut short..and now having returned I wanted to pursue what I couldn't do on my last visit and that was to find the name among the many thousands on the wall of a great friend that was killed at Firebase Khe Sahn in 1968 while serving with a maintenace battalion there
Although this Memorial was surrounded by contaversy when first designed and built ..it certainly has turned out to be a magnificent structure featuring the names of so many young Americans that didnt return home. just so many people here always can always be seen making a pilgrimage to the wall usually to trace the name of a lost family member or friend onto a peice of paper or just to touch the name . so sad...
Address: 900 Ohio Drive, SW
