This website is an on-line version of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial
in Washington, DC. with a personal memorial for each American military
casualty of the Vietnam War. The memorial pages have photographs and personal
tributes sent to us by relatives and friends.
During the government shutdown, access to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, is open. There are no
National Park Service volunteers or rangers on duty, and no open restrooms nearby. Some
veterans are there, unofficially, to help visitors find names. There are also
panhandlers impersonating veterans there. The real volunteers there will not accept
tips or donations.
