Follow Friday–Vietnam Virtual Wall

Vietnam Was Memorial

We all know of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. However, I did not know until coming across this website today that there was The Virtual Wall; Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

The Virtual Wall is a continuation of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in D.C. and brings the honor of the fallen Vietnam veteran to every home. You can search for names or you can look by locality, like your hometown and see all those that were killed in Vietnam. What is great about this site is that when you come across a persons name you can click on it and it will bring up facts on that person, like when the died and the circumstances. Some even have photos and family and friends can leave messages or letters to their lost loves.

This is a great resource for the family historian but it is even a better resource for honoring the brave men and women who gave their life for this country in the Vietnam War. My heartfelt thanks goes out to the volunteers that make this virtual memorial available to us all.
