Vietnam Veterans Memorial (USA). The opposite of DC’s white, gleaming marble, the black, low-lying Vietnam memorial cuts into the earth, just as the Vietnam War cut into the national psyche. The monument shows the names of the war’s 58,267 fatalities – listed in the order they died – along a dark, reflective wall.
Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall | I remember visiting the wall as a boy with my father who served as United States Marine in Vietnam in 1968 and 1969. It was an emotional, memorable experience to say the least. | Thank God for our #veterans
