Honoring The Fallen American Troops Of The Vietnam War In This Highly Symbolic Way

On Father’s day this year, the children, grandchildren, friends and family members of the American troops who died during the Vietnam war helped wash the Vietnam Memorial Wall that commemorates the bravery of the 58,000 fallen.

The washing of the wall provides a way for the family members to honor the memory of their loved ones as well as preserve the memorial itself.

Mark Morse of the National Park Service describes why the volunteers wash the wall from the edges towards the center.  It is highly symbolic and helps close the wounds.
