The Vietnam Memorial is a beautiful reminder of the ones who continued to give us freedom. I like that you can take a pencil and sheet of paper and find the name of your loved one and etch it onto the paper. What a gift!

Take your time and reflect on that era. There are people there to talk to you about the Memorial, just be courteous and quiet if you can, families of the deceased visit also and take etchings from the wall.

I had always imagined the black walls to be bigger. Vietnam war and soldiers deserve a larger memorial !

Mementos and photos of the service members on the memorial wall are still being left - obviously a very painful period of time.

I always wanted to visit here. The thing that hits u is the size and amount of names of veterans, so many. But it's a lovely tribute to those that died

If you are just looking at this one memorial it will not take more than 20-30 minutes. However the memorials are all very close and in walking distance.

I think the Vietnam memorial is between the Foggy Bottom (GWU) and Smithsonian metro stops.
