Vietnam Veterans National Memorial [DC]
The Vietnam Veterans National Memorial offers a place for reflection and personal interaction with the memory of military personnel killed in the Vietnam War. Designed by artist and architect Maya Lin (born 1959) as a minimalist sculpture with a highly reflective surface, viewing the monument requires visitors to confront both themselves and the names of the fallen simultaneously. U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War spanned 1950 (the arrival of U.S. military advisors in Vietnam) through 1973.
The site presents the memorial only.
