Memorial

Many people have commented how the Iraq Names Project reminds them of Maya Lin’s Viet Nam Memorial. When people see the names it personalizes the war. There is a realization that these are not abstract heroes fighting far away, these are our neighbors, the kid down the street, firefighters, teachers and clerks.

Last month the Iraq Names Project was next to the granite wall at the Bonneville Power Administration building making the connection to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in DC even stronger.

Here is a page of links to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Please visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial if you get a chance.
