40 Top Photos Taken at The Wall – As Chosen by the Volunteers of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial

In 2022 – we commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Throughout the year, we’ll be highlighting lists of 40 things related to the Vietnam war/era.

This month, we asked our volunteers or “Yellow Hats” to pick their top 40 photos taken at the Memorial site. Their selections are below:
