The Vietnam War began in the 1950s in Southeast Asia, ending on April 30, 1975 with the fall of Saigon. The war spread to neighboring countries of Laos and Cambodia. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial was dedicated in 1982. The controversial design was the work of a then 21 year old student at Yale University, Maya Lin. The simple design is a thought provoking reminder of those who died in service for our country. Many visitors to the memorial leave personal mementos, flowers, and flags to honor loved ones who are memorialized on the Wall.
