A Visit to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Yesterday my old college roommate and I went to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC. In this paper I will interpret this memorial, and talk about the items and icons that are present at "The Wall." The day was overcast and there was some light drizzle, putting a somber tone on our visit. My own background includes involvement in the anti-war movement in the early 70's (I as in High School at the time) and although I'd been to Washington many times since the memorial was opened, this was my first visit to it.
