Seeing as how it is Memorial Day for those of us in the States, I decided to pop over to have a look. I used to live near D.C., and the real-world memorial is one of the most profoundly moving memorials I have seen. It is not so much because of the memorial itself as it is the people who go there. Every time I have been there, I have seen veterans in their fatigues, family groups crying and looking for that one special name, and of course the mementos left like little offerings. For me (who did not lose anyone in the Vietnam war… all my military connections are either too old or too young), it is a reminder of the terrible price ordinary families pay throughout the world because of war.

If you cannot go to see the original, the builders have done an excellent job at recreating the experience in Second Life.
