Memorial Wall

Hope. Patriotism. Despair. Bravado. These and other emotions pulse through letters written by men and women who served in Southeast Asia. Excerpts of 83 of these letters are etched in the memorial’s glass block and granite wall, 70 feet long and 16 feet high, the Plaza’s heart and soul. The surrounding public space offers an opportunity for quiet reflection in a sheltered park atmosphere.
