What can you say but a very nice tribute. Easy to get to and close to the other tributes. As with all of the tributes in the area, this is a must see!

This is very close to the Vietnam War Memorial Wall, and it is a good statue and memorial to observe. If you're in the area, its worth a short stop to take this one in.

This Memorial is right next to the Viet Nam Wall, so don't overlook it! Not much ado, but is a nice statue.

There are so many landmarks in this area (Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson, etc.) that some of the smaller memorials get overlooked. This monument pays tribute to the women who served in Vietnam, and should be a stop if you are in the area.

Without context this may be difficult to appreciate and can be easily overlooked. This memorial spoke to one of my daughters. Some will leave flowers which is a nice touch.
