“Dont do at night”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

all the memorials are incredible. This one the only one you can't really appreciate at night. Do during the day. Moving....the only memorial that lists every lost soldier....very sobering!

“Moving memorial”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I don't have a strong connection to the Vietnam war but found the sheer number of names listed to be sobering. Glad my 10 year old daughter was also able to see the cost of war. Recommend a visit.

“Another must see”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

The massive wall put into perspective for my kids what the price of war means to Americans. Although, they are too young to remember Vietnam, they were able to absorb the life that was given for the war. Glad we were able to share this with our kids.

“Sad that all that youth was wasted.”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

It took me a couple visits to "get it"--that while you are standing there looking at the names, you are also seeing a reflection of yourself.
