Vietnam Veterans Memorial ~ serves to remember with honor the 58,195 U.S. service members of the U.S. armed forces who fought in the Vietnam War, service members who died in service in Vietnam/South East Asia, and those service members who were unaccounted for (Missing In Action) during the War.
They never received a welcome home like soldier's before them. They were spat upon and called baby burners. Most of these men were drafted out of high school . Either way they are still our US service men, many died and ALL fought to protect.
