THE VIETNAM VETERANS MEMORIAL
The third in my series of D.C. Memorials is The Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial pays tribute to those who served in the Vietnam War. The memorial is a black granite wall inscribed with the names of 58,209 American’s killed or missing in the Vietnam conflict.
VIETNAM WOMAN’S MEMORIAL
The Vietnam Women’s Memorial is a memorial dedicated to the women of the United States who served in the Vietnam War, most of whom were nurses. It serves as a reminder of the importance of women in the conflict. It depicts three uniformed women with a wounded soldier. The woman looking up is named Hope, the woman praying is named Faith, and the woman tending to a wounded soldier is named Charity. It is part of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and is located on National Mall in Washington DC, a short distance south of The Wall, north of the Reflecting Pool.
At the time of my visit I didn’t know about the Women’s Memorial, so I downloaded the above photo from the internet.

While at “The Wall” one of our traveling buddies looked up a fallen hero, his name appears below and in one of the photos taken at “The Wall”.
