Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Photos are from my nephew’s (James Murphy)  Washington visit in March 2018

Vietnam Veterans Memorial, 5 Henry Bacon Dr NW, Washington, DC 20245


Today I’m sharing photos from the archives. Back in 2018, my nephew and his wife drove to Washington D. C. during spring break. They are both teachers and this was their first visit to the nations capitol. Unfortunately, this spring isn’t a time to travel, and instead they were going from store to store a couple of weeks ago to find cat food. Luckily they found some at the 5th store. Thanks Heather & James for sharing your photos. Today we’ve visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.





The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a 2-acre U.S. national memorial in Washington, D.C. It honors service members of the U.S. armed forces who fought in the Vietnam War, service members who died in service in Vietnam/South East Asia, and those service members who were unaccounted for during the war.





It is a beautiful and touching memorial – even at night. Honoring the men and women who served in the controversial Vietnam War, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial chronologically lists the names of more than 58,000 Americans who gave their lives in service to their country.





Stay safe!

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.

  1. Love all the nightime photos! Great job! I have been to D.C. a couple of times . I need to take my girls, but I want to wait till they are a little bit older and can remember the visit.

    1. Yes that is a good idea. There is so much on the Washington Mall. Just one visit to Smithsonian is totally overwhelming. Have a great Sunday.

    1. I’m really proud of my nephew’s photos in Washington – the monuments are beautiful. Hope you’re have a blessed Sunday!

  2. We had briefly talked last year about heading to DC in the spring to see the cherry blossoms bloom. Not this year sadly as our entire country and world are in need of healing prayers from this dreaded virus. Stay home and safe.

  3. I do enjoy visiting the nation’s capitol. These are some very lovely photos. I especially like the one of the Washington Monument at the end of the Wall. Thank you for sharing! Stay safe and have a grand week!

  4. Carol – I have been to the Memorial, but it was some time ago. I forgot how the length of that wall struck me until I saw the picture again. War … something we can choose to/work to avoid, unlike our current situation. Stay well, and thanks for taking the time to stay connected through Mosaic Monday!

  5. Remembering is good , good to have such an archive .. .. the other captures are fantastic as ever in each post.

    …yes, keep in touch in Corona time. Its the one and only way we have yet…

    Stay healthy!

    Happy MosaicMonday

  6. Hello, lovely images of the war memorials and Wash DC. I have been there a few times, it is beautifully done.
    Take care, stay well! Wishing you a great new week!

  7. I would love to visit the memorials and I’m so very pleased to see it through the eyes of your nephew. His photos are lovely. What a powerful experience.

    1. If you didn’t see them 2 years ago, check out his photos from the other memorials and monuments. He has such a great eye for composition. Take care.

  8. Back when I was in education I had the opportunity to attend two conferences in Washington DC and Wayne and I went to visit once. As aviation enthusiasts we really enjoyed the Air and Space Museum. The Rutan Voyager airplane had just been installed. We felt a connection since we met Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager when they came as guest speakers to the Mt. SAC Flying Team before the epic flight. After the talk we took them out to dinner and they accepted our invitation to stay at our home rather than a hotel room. When we took them to dinner they were dressed in their blue jumpsuits. The hostess asked if they were astronauts. Jeana almost rode in an experimental rocket under some scary conditions. – Margy

    1. Wow – that sounds amazing. I loved the Smithsonian displays on air travel, but your experience goes way beyond that.

  9. we visited this memorial when we were in Washington, D.C. to run the Marine Corps Marathon last year. As someone who remembers the Vietnam war, it was especially touching. Thank you for sharing.

  10. Nice shots! When I lived near DC, I never made it to the Vietnam Memorial. I meant to go, but I think the sadness held me back. I lost a friend, and I knew quite a few people who made it back but were changed by the war.

  11. Such an emotional place. The photos are just stunning.

    Your link is a great addition to ‘My Corner of the World’ this week! Thanks for linking up!
