Editorial Reviews

Of all our nation's conflicts, the Vietnam War evokes the rawest emotions and has galvanized and divided Americans from the turbulent decade it helped define to the present day. In the quest to create a memorial honoring the 58,195 service members lost in our nation's longest and most controversial war, passions ran high. Some believed it would never be built. Yet out of the mayhem, a uniquely moving and beautiful monument emerged. Here is that remarkable story.

Remembering Vietnam: The Wall at 25 presents decorated Vietnam veteran Jan Scruggs, whose vision in 1979 to build a Vietnam memorial was met with cynicism and opposition, and Maya Lin, the Yale undergraduate whose etched granite memorial was once called a black gash of shame, nearly halting the project.

Now, 25 years later, Smithsonian Networks explores the very personal story of The Wall, from its unlikely beginnings to its current status as Washington, D.C.'s most visited monument, drawing millions each year to grieve, pay tribute or heal old wounds. Many leave personal tokens and mementos as offerings.

Remembering Vietnam The Wall at 25 shares not only the history of The Wall, but the compelling stories of veterans who served our country. Discover what this heart wrenching tribute means to those who fought and to the families of those who never returned. And experience what this iconic tribute teaches every American about courage, vision, war and remembrance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review from www.firrkids.com January 14, 2009
My expectations are always so high when it comes to videos from the Smithsonian Networks and they never fail to deliver. As expected, this video is yet another winner to add to their collection.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial was founded by Jan Scruggs, an infantry corporal who served in Vietnam from 1969-1970. He wanted to create a memorial that would acknowledge and recognize the service and sacrifice of all the men and women who had served in Vietnam. After raising the necessary funds, The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund held a national design competition.

The winning entry was created by Maya Ying Lin. She envisioned black granite walls that would provide a mirror-like surface to reflect the surrounding images. Her vision was met with cynicism and opposition to the point that the project nearly halted, taking three and half years to finish.

This film takes a look back at the huge impact this memorial has had on the American people. It is now Washington D.C.'s most visited monument, drawing millions of visitors each year. There are a total of 58,260 names listed, including approximately 1,200 missing persons. This film is very well done, providing a fascinating look at the history of The Wall, as well as sharing some of the stories of the veterans who served our country.

Struggling to find a good gift for that hard-to-buy-for person in your life? In addition to this video, Smithsonian Networks offers out some of the very best and most intriguing programs.

Great transaction. It shipped pretty fast. This DVD has some footage of my father at the wall. He passed away a year ago, and so I had to be sure to get the DVD. He was a hero in Vietnam, and a hero to me in everything he did. The transaction went quickly, and so I purchased a second copy for my sister. Thank you so much!
