Did you know?
America's most visited memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, features the names of more than 58,000 soldiers who served and died in the war. The Vietnam Women's Memorial was dedicated ten years later, in 1993, to honor the 11,000 American military women who were stationed in Vietnam.
