    There's a giant book along the grass that helps you find your loved one's name, as the wall is not sorted alphabetically.

    Keep your voice down, control your children and walk by the wall in awe. Also, if it's raining or the ground is still wet, the walkway can get pretty slippery.

    Look for the little symbols next to the names. A diamond means they died. A cross means they were Missing In Action and a filled in cross signifies that they were MIA but later found

    Powerful memorial. A diamond means they died. A cross next to the name means they were lost. If it has a circle on the cross means they found them. No name has a circle next to it...
