    Impossibly moving. It’s one of the truly great memorials of any sort, even more so because it shows so clearly the heroism and futility of war. Each name a sacrifice beyond measure, a reminder why wars are never won when someone’s father or son doesn’t come home.

    Everyone I come here it blows me away how powerful. This time around was on Veteran's Day, which resulted in a lot more Vietnam vets there who were willing to chat with you about their experiences.
    The park Rangers are also there and are full of info about the war, memorial, and site.

    Sobering and humbling, even for a me - an Indian - with no connections in US or Vietnam. With closed eyes, I spent five minutes touching one of the walls where they had engraved names of the brave soldiers. It felt like a holy communion with humankind, and with oneself. I can't express this better, but I was choked with emotions for some time. Was it the architecture, was it my frame of mind.. I don't know for sure..

    So many names, so many emotions. This is a memorial that pretty much anyone from the Vietnam War era will find very emotional. A very sacred memorial dedicated to so many who gave their lives. Very tough to describe how I feel each time I have been here. A must visit memorial no matter how many times you go to this area, even if only to pay your respects.

    Another touching monument along The Mall is that of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. During my last visit in May 2016, I enjoyed seeing the monument in front of the row of trees flush with green, a benefit of visiting during the warmer months of the year. This is a good time of year to take photographs of this particular monument.

    I've always been impressed with the simplicity of this monument, being two walls set at an angle cut into the ground. It is a respectable yet haunting design and leaves you with deep impressions, regardless if you know veterans or victims of this most tragic war.

    In addition to seeing the list of soldiers killed in battle during the Vietnam War engraved along this monument walls, there is also a statue of three soldiers in combat gear that you can see nearby. This is worth seeing.

    Also worth taking time to visit is the Vietnam Women's Memorial, which commemorates the 265,000 woman that served during that period. This monument is just a couple minutes walk east.

    Note: The Vietnam Veterans Memorial can be quite crowded due to its importance as well as it proximity to other famous and popular memorials nearby. If you want unobstructed photographs or more peaceful, quiet visits, it is best to visit very early in the morning, just after daybreak. At this time, you can view prior to the large crowds arriving.
