  • Outside Mash, not sure just how much the average person realizes how women were engaged in this war. A very modest yet humble, somewhat gut-wrenching display of women in a war. 
  • A group very well done sculptural which complements very well the sobriedaddel monument to the fallen in that war.

  • This is a lovely memorial situated in a nice quiet and picturesc area. Easy to walk to and photograph 
  • 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.
  • 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
  • So glad the sacrifices of these brave young women is recognized here as well. Moving tribute, really wonderful sculpture.
  • A touching addition to the Wall. A much admired addition to the Wall that honors and recognizes the service of women nurses during the Vietnam conflict. Just a few yards away from the Wall itself, the memorial is beautifully sculpted to show the care and work performed by women nurses.
