Why was the Vietnam war memorial built in DC?

First of all, the name is the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. It is not a memorial to war. It is a memorial to those who were called to serve. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial honors all American military persons who served in the war and specifically names the 58,260 who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Eight were women. It was built in Washington, DC because that is the capital of the USA. A group of Vietnam War veterans organized getting government approval to build on a US National Park but the money to build it was donated by the general public. They recognized that the bitterness and confusion about the war left relatives and friends of the fallen without a sense of pride. Anti-war protesters of the time frequently blamed the war on those who were called to serve. More details are on the web site, see the link below.
