Wonderful..I have a family member who is a Vietnamese vet. The wall is awesome and reverent. He was able to find the names of a couple of buddies and broke down in tears. Full review by nanaLowe

The memorial is a well thought out tribute. Sad to see over 58,000 names had to go on this. Plenty of walking space here. Nice to see people have put flowers and photos here upon their visits Full review by Waynetraveller

A very moving tribute to the fallen soldiers. It is just next to Lincoln memorial. I was sad to see so many lost lives during the war. Full review by LisaMNUSA

What's the question?
Are Support dogs allowed at The Wall ??
It is an outdoor memorial within a park area so I believe support dogs are allowed
Can you bring your dog here by the wall?
Yes. We saw dogs all around in the open areas of the mall.
Hi, How long do you recommend you allow for a visit? Thanks Bev
If you are just looking at this one memorial it will not take more than 20-30 minutes. However the memorials are all very close and in walking distance.
