Vietnam War Memorial Washington DC | Profiling Great Americans: Great Americans A to Z: Maya Lin
Vietnam Veterans Memorial (USA). The opposite of DC’s white, gleaming marble, the black, low-lying Vietnam memorial cuts into the earth, just as the Vietnam War cut into the national psyche. The monument shows the names of the war’s 58,267 fatalities – listed in the order they died – along a dark, reflective wall.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall USA website is dedicated to honoring those who died in the Vietnam War. Since it first went on line in 1996 it has evolved into something more. It is now also a place of healing for those affected by one of the most divisive wars in U.S history.
