  • 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.
  • An awesome tribute to the women's effort, bravery, and contribution to the war.
  • Glenna Goodacre's craftsmanship (craftswomanship?) is remarkable. The statue is beautiful. I definitely recommend visiting this monument if you ever go to D.C.
  • Finally got to see this monument. Really hits home for a Veteran
  • 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.
