'Always Remembered' - The Vietnam Wall in Washington DC. I've seen this wall in person, but I have to say even in print, it still brings me to tears. There's a person behind every name.......... RIP and THANK YOU FOR YOUR BRAVERY!

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.
