    Located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall honors the men and women who served when their nation called upon them. Deliberately setting aside the controversies of the war, the designer, Maya Lin, felt that “the politics had eclipsed the veterans, their service and their lives.” In keeping with this belief, the design remains elegantly simple to “allow everyone to respond and remember.”
