  • It was a very realistic tribute to the nurses who came to the aid of our soldiers during a very tough war.  more »

  • This memorial aims at commemorating the 265,000 women who volunteered during the Vietnam War. It's a really beautiful sculpture which reminds that women not only volunteered as nurses but also in the military and as civilians.
  • Faith Hope and Mercy the three woman of Vietnam what a moving tribute. The expression and craftsmanship are wonderful. Everyone should visit this place to take in the history of this great nation and to pay respect to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that we all live free.
  • The statue is one of the less popular spots to visit however I'd definitely recommend making the time to visit.
  • 5-14-17 very nice tribute to the women who served during Vietnam.
  • The Vietnam Woman's Memorial (in Washington, DC) is a great place to stop and relax when touring the National Mall. It's a short walk from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (the Wall) but it stands on it's own very well (along with the nearby Three Soldiers statue). If you're in to photography this is a great place to get shots since it's never as crowded with visitors as some of the other memorials. At night it's lit up for a seriously awesome picture.

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
