I have been to The Wall and it is such an impressive and emotional monument. I was on Air Force wife during much of the Vietnam War, so there are names I know there.

It is so solemn every time I visit it, but yet the wall is a place I love.

Such a powerful place. Really lovely picture too.

Great picture. A friend's dad is on that wall. Our families are really close, I really wish I can go there.

Here's my WW entry for this week.

Happy WW!

I was most impressed by the Vietnam War Memorial when I went to DC. I love how it reflects and really evokes a feeling of how personally the war has impacted so many families.

Such a powerful thing.

I think my mum as a great uncle on a wall somewhere.

All those walls have too many names.

The Vietnam Memorial is my favorite. Always chokes me up. Interactive, way before all this 2.0 business
