Virtual Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall

If you wish to pay your respects but cannot travel to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in D.C., can now do so from your computer. NARA and Footnote.com have released a searchable digital replica of the Memorial Wall.

The site also allows you to “leave a tribute, a story or photograph about any of the 58,256 veterans killed or missing in the Vietnam War”.

Word of warning, the site claims that due to recent high traffic, you might experience slow loading pages or images. They are working to improve this.
