The Memorial Wall is made up of two walls
246 feet long. The stone for the wall was
deliberately chosen because of its reflective
quality. When a visitor looks upon the wall, his
or her reflection can be seen simultaneously with
the engraved names, which is meant to
symbolically bring the past and present together.
One wall points toward the Washington Monument,
the other in the direction of the Lincoln
Memorial.
