  • Beautiful scuplure. A lovely tribute to the women who served
  • 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.
  • The statue is one of the less popular spots to visit however I'd definitely recommend making the time to visit.
  • 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.
  • 5-14-17 very nice tribute to the women who served during Vietnam.
