Peaceful and respectful place you can visit to remember those who died for their country and for a country that is in the other side of the globe.

We were there when one of the honor flight groups was there. Very moving. Simple but makes a profound statement.

While at the Lincoln Memorial we walked the short distance to the Vietnam Memorial. It is an eye opener with the amount of service personnel who served during this war. Worth a look

Very moving. A must see to honor those that fought for our country! My father is a Vietnam survivor so this was extra special for me. I highly recommend a walk thru of this memorial. It only take a few minutes.

We took this kids to see the Vietnam Memorial. I had an uncle and father who served in the Vietnam War. The memorial is well done and visiting it is a very moving experience.

A 91 yr old vet friend would like me to be his escort on an honor flight. I am an 80 yr old woman ( not a vet). What would be the requirements for me to do this?
