    For those of us who served during the VietNam Conflict, this wall evokes a “gut-level” memory of the many, many fine young men who gave their lives because their country asked them to serve. I remember my fellow Marine’s faces and carry their memory at a visceral level. Semper Fidelis. I pray that human beings will eventually quit killing each other and that the young girls pictures above will never know the sorrow and pain of losing a loved one in combat. While it hurts, I thank you Mark, for reminding and sharing with us the powerful image.

  • I am proud that you commented on this photo. Thank you for serving our country and doing the seemingly impossible task of defending our nation’s “questionable” interests while in another’s foreign land. That is one bat I have never had to step up to…

    My eyes dance around on this – the tiny pieces of stray hairs off the visitors – their reflections and the highlights of The Names – and the lovely angle of the sun – and that small, amplified flag.
    Thank you for this.

    Beyond this being an outstanding composition, this invokes a visceral response in this viewer. I too have never been faced with the decesion of accepting or denying a leaders call to war. But I do remember the terrible controversy the unveiling of this memorial’s invoked among many. I remember the tears and out pouring of pain from its young designer Maya Lin as veterens denounced her and this work. Perhaps the pain of loss so deep and fresh,the agony of a country who regualrly spit upon returning veterens was to much to hold back for any reason. But personally I could not think of a more loving tribute to those men and women than the naming, individual sacrifice by individual sacrifice those who were taken from us to soon. And to create a place for those who did return to remember and perhaps to heal. And now to see the faces of the young girls, the physical connection to what war costs, this piece of yours is beautiful. Thank you for posting it.

  • Such a nice comment… I went there twice and the second time no photo opportunities occurred quite like this one…
