    Very interesting website: VIETNAM MEMORIAL WALL - click on any state and city, to see who is honored

    A duplicate of the thread that I posted in Hot Topics.

    This certainly can't be considered as CURRENT events...but it certainly involved politics, and warfare is a nasty job. For whatever reasons, whether or not the troops really knew the reasons for what they were doing (or, worse, those who were forcibly drafted and could not see any reason at all for this long nightmare), I have always had utmost admiration for Vietnam veterans.

    You can look at ANY STATE, and a list of cities, including the very smallest, will come up.

    This is really sobering. Click on the link and find the city you went to high school and look at the names.

    OR. MUCH MORE LIKELY, THE CITY WHERE YOUR PARENTS OR PERHAPS EVEN GRANDPARENTS WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL...

    Click on the name and it will give details of the death.

    First click on a state. When it opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear.

    Then click on their names. It should show you a picture of the person, or at least their bio and medals.

    This really is an amazing web site. Someone spent a lot of time and effort to create it.

    I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.

    The link below is a virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam war with the names, bio's and other information on our lost heroes. Those who remember that time frame, or perhaps lost friends or family can look them up on this site.

    Pass the link on to others, as many knew wonderful people whose names are listed.

    Thank you Frank. This is truly an amazing site. It even tells you where on the wall the name is listed.
    I don't think I knew anyone killed there but I guess I'll have to look.
    The Veterans I have talked to over the past year will be glad to see this.

    The first time I visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial was on Christmas Day some years back. On that day I expected to find it devoid of visitors, anticipating that the situation of the holiday would allow me to experience its energy in my own way and in relatively private solitude.

    My expectation was quickly proven wrong. There are quite a lot of names engraved on that wall and each inscription stands as a testament to the parents, siblings, lovers, children, friends, co-workers, brothers-in-arms, and others who know a name for the individual it represents. How silly of me to think I could visit that space on any day or at any time without also seeing those other people as a part of the experience. And yes, you can gaze at the names – but the polish of black granite quietly reflects everyone who stands before it.


    Thanks for sharing this resource, frankfrank.

    Thanks frankfrank. It brought up alot of intense emotions for me. I have always felt a special connection to the guys who served in Vietnam...it is an empathy thing for me. I hate what they had to face both in the war and afterward when they returned. When I know someone was in Vietnam I have an instant respect and feeling of kindness toward them.

    I am glad I got a chance to read their names...it was very powerful. Thanks again.

    Agreed Frank. Thank you for sharing. I hope this country never has the lack of character to send people to war and then treat them like shit. This is an amazing tribute.

    There is no Australia in that link ?
    Australia and New Zealand remember and march about Vietnam war every year .

    ^ I haven't been there, but it would certainly be fitting to show, AT THE VERY LEAST, the numbers of killed military from countries outside the United States. The listing should even include countries which sent any military personnel at all, but were fortunate enough to have no deaths. (I doubt there were any.) That probably isn't shown, though. Does Australia or New Zealand have any kind of Vietnam Memorial site?'

    I've seen "national" memorials to only two wars: The World War I memorial in Kansas City just a couple weeks ago (with JayHawk), and the Civil War Museum (a/k/a the War of Northern Aggression, in the Confederate States of America, a breakaway independent nation from 1861 to 1865) - which is located in Richmond, which was the CSA Capital. Amazingly to me, they actually preserved, and exhibit, Robert E. Lee's uniform. I have also seen a few sites that pertain to individual campaigns or battles, though, and I saw a smaller/regional Vietnam memorial somewhere - Dallas?? Portland?? - just can't remember where.
