The Vietnam Veterans Memorial honors the courage, sacrifice, and devotion to duty and country of the men and women of the armed forces of the United States who served in America's longest war. By virtue of its design, the memorial inspires a contemplative experience and puts a human face on a divisive conflict. Veterans, their families, and others find the memorial a place for reflection and healing.

On the granite walls of the Memorial are more than 58,000 names of those listed as missing or killed in action in Vietnam. They are listed chronologically, according to the date of death or loss.

As you approach "the Wall"on the path to your left you will pass the Three Servicemen statue. It reflects the shared experience of Vietnam veterans.

The Vietnam Women's Memorial is located on the path to your right. More than 10,000 American women served in the military in Vietnam.
