The Memorial's walls are polished marble. The names are of the fallen soldiers, 58,000 soldier names. The only names that are missing are the people who died after coming home years later of cancer from dioxin poisoning through Agent Orange or from suicide.

Reflections of faces within the hall, gazing at the names that lines the walls, once they had voices, hopes and dreams like us, but now, only silence.
