The Three Soldiers stand guard to the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington DC. The 3 bronze figures were unveiled 2 years after the completion of the Vietnam War Memorial, which had been considered an unfitting memorial by some veterans of the conflict.

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    Great capture, the lighting around this statue can be challenging, well done! One of the issues with the “Wall” was that it was in a hole, buried…. sweeping the sacrifices of Vietnam Veterans, in effect, under the rug. Nobody could have envisioned the dramatic effect and tone that the Wall has created…. A true memorial that all visitors treat with the utmost reverance and respect. To those who servered and are serviing… Thank you!

  • Thanks. Somehwere amongst the many hundreds of photos I took in DC, there should be a couple of The Three Servicemen at night. I will see how they turned out and may add one if they’re anything like.
    It’s only since I returned that I have really found out that the Three is actually a part of the Vietnam War Memorial. I didn’t know the Vietnam memorial itself had initially caused such bad feeling. Personally I found the Vietnam War Memorial most interesting and to me it is perfect in its simplicity.
