Vietnam Wall Sunrise is a sobering experience from spending time at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC.  The Vietnam Wall displays the names of over 58,000 Americans who gave their life in the Vietnam War, serving our great country.  It’s a powerful reminder that our freedom isn’t free.  Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it’s often hard to find a time when the wall is void of people paying their respects.  However, those willing to wake up before dawn can find the memorial mostly empty, and with the right angle you’ll see some amazing reflections.  Growing up hearing stories from my Dad, a Vietnam War veteran, I can almost hear the sounds of helicopter blades above and Creedence Clearwater Revival playing in the background.
