Yes Cricket, we served, and our friends who died were cheated out our their lives so angry people like you can refer to our President as a shitbag. So clever... makes me proud to have served for folks like you. War never solved anything right...where would civilization be if no war was ever fought? Truly think about that for a moment.

This is the tragedy and sorrow of our never ending wars, good men and women that were cheated out of their lives by shitbags like Bush

I think a list of the dead is a far more humbling, realistic, and appropriate monument. It reminds us that people sacrificed themselves rather than making it out as all glorious.

I've been there. It's awesome. This picture makes me cry since I know many VVets and was also married to one. Miraculous things happen at The Wall. .

Unanimous opinion is rare--to state the obvious. Few would argue now that the Memorial has not been a magnificent success.

Funny thing about the Vietnam Veterans Memorial: What today is considered to be an almost perfect memorial to the soldiers who died in that war, was at the time bitterly opposed by veterans for a couple reasons. First, they didn't want a list of the names of the dead, they wanted something heroic and realistic that epitomized fighting men. Second, the designer was Maya Lin, a 21 year old American of Chinese descent; some felt that a more "American" designer would have been appropriate. There are actually three works in the Vietnam Veterans Memorial--as a compromise, a bronze statue of three male soldiers was placed a short distance away, and later a statue to honor the women who fought in the war.
