"Most visitors have no particular vet in mind. They come because they know the Memorial has something important to offer."
To Heal A Nation
By Jan C. Scruggs & Joel L. Swerdlow
|ne of the 20th
Century's greatest human tragedies,
the cost of the Vietnam War will forever be calculated by the 3 million lives lost in the conflict. Thirty one years have passed since the fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975.
In more than a quarter century, the scars of battle have healed slowly for many of the 2.7 million U.S.
servicemen and women who served in Vietnam, and for
the loved ones of those who died in the small
country halfway around the world.
In Its Reflection
One can not help but be moved by the solemn dignity that the Memorial
evokes and with the reverence it is held in by all who walk in its reflection.
