The Viet Nam Memorials

The Viet Nam War Memorials create the strongest emotional response it me.  It has be the fact that is is "Our Generations" war.  People we knew served and died in this war.  You visit the wall and the names of all these young people are there.  People who died before they were really adults.  People who left children and wives and families behind.  I look back at it now and I still ask Why?  I am not sure.  We didn't conquer some evil enemy.  We now get along with the communist government, people vacation there.  Refugees who immigrated here go back to visit families with out incident.  I just don't know.  I do know that the memorials that honor those who served and not the war are the most meaningful.
