The Vietnam Wall was built to honor those fallen during the Vietnam War. The simplicity of the wall and the enormity of it really captures the sadness of those lost and the enormity of the war itself. There are thousands (close to 59 thousand I believe) of names on the wall. Often, people lay flowers and flags at the foot of the wall. Across from the wall is a statue that is reflected in the wall certain times of the day. An awesome sight. The monument is free to all and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
