Vietnam War Memorial
The Vietnam Memorial was created with 3 separate parts that include The Wall itself, the Three Soldiers Statue which purposefully depicts a White American, Black American and Hispanic soldier, and the Vietnam Woman’s Memorial dedicated to the women who served during the war mainly as nurses. The main part was completed in 1982 and is located in the Constitution Gardens. The wall was designed by Maya Ying Lin and is made of two black granite walls that are 246 feet long and stand 10 feet high. Each wall has 72 panels with 70 listing names. Each year the Vietnam Memorial has around 3 million visitors.
