The Vietnam War Memorial is actually really close by the Lincoln Memorial, but it's easy to miss. The wall isn't nearly as tall as I had imagined.
A very popular spot as well, plenty of tourists in your way too.
But The Wall has every U.S. service member who was either killed or MIA during the Vietnam War. I believe it should highlight the fact that we use many good common people for war. Just one of those names was too many to lose. It's amazing how many names are on this wall. Every baby boomer alive should know at least one person who is on this wall, and that's sad.
But I'm glad I got to see it for the first time. One of the most beautiful memorials they've done in the city.
