Visiting the Vietnam Memorial was so special for all of us. My mom's nephew was killed in Vietnam in 1979. Since the memorial was built, she has hoped that one day she would be able to find Kurt's name. When Tim was in DC with our older kids, he found the name and gave my mom the information on where it could be located. With that information we located his name easily. It is a very moving experience.
Besides the memorial wall, there is also a sculpture for the men and one for the women who served in that war.
