    The Viet Nam Wall. Seeing the names of those i served with brings tears and laughter.

    I grew up in the DC area, so i've been to all of them. The prettiest is the area around the Jefferson Memorial when the dogwoods are blooming.

    Thats a bit unfair, I have never been to Washington or even America.

    But for me, the horrendous military graveyards in Europe, and Turkey where Australians and New Zealanders are buried....because it was not possible to send them home by ship in the period of WW1, WW2 etc. Very moving of course.

    In Syria, there have been recent desecration of some of these graves by people of militant backgrounds....May they rot in hell for such monstrous villainy.

    They have a long history of desecration of historic sites and artifacts. They have chased the righteous from their land and now fight among themselves. The memorial they leave will be their own blood.

    Though this is not in DC or even the States, I had the opportunity to visit a museum in Berlin- to honor those who attempted escape from East Germany - many who died trying to do so.

    If I remember correctly it was close by Checkpoint Charlie
