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.
