What is the name of the artist who designed the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial?

Monument in Washington, D.C., designed by maya-lin. It consists of two low, black granite walls that meet to form a wide V shape. Engraved on the mirrorlike surface are the names of the more than 58,000 U.S. dead and missing-in-action who served in the vietnam-war, listed by date of casualty. When Lin's abstract design was announced, several veterans groups and others protested; eventually a traditional statue depicting three servicemen with a flag was commissioned, to stand at the entrance to the site. Since its dedication in 1982, the controversial wall has become one of the city's most visited and most affecting tourist attractions.The Memorial was built with funds donated from corporations, veterans organizations and individuals throughout the United States.


How far can the American withdrawal from Vietnam be blamed on military failure?

Not far at all. I've talked to MANY ex-military veterans -- the opinion I've come to form over the years is that failure in Vietnam primarily is due to flawed politics and unclear directions given to commanders at the highest levels. I'm not naive though. There are certainly more than their fair share of purely military failures at virtually all levels. But it is my belief that failure in Vietnam was due primarily to the politicians.

Why did the VFW FORM?

The Spanish-American War of 1898 was the first "Foreign" war fought on foreign soil by US forces. In 1899 veterans of that war formed the "Veterans of FOREIGN Wars" to protect themselves from political moves that would/could short change veterans and associated benefits. The first established military veterans group had been GAR (Grand Army of the Republic), which consisted of (Union) US Civil War veterans; they died out when the last Civil War (GAR member) veteran passed on. Each veterans group is normally created to protect the benefits of that particular veterans "group"; as the years go by, politicians perform budget cuts...which often effects veterans. The "American Legion" was formed by WW1 vets; AMVETs (American Veterans) was formed by WW2 vets. The most unique veterans group was the VVA (Vietnam Veterans of America); this group was (often) NOT allowed to join established veterans organizations during the 1960's; so they formed their own group in about 1978. The VVA's motto, is "they will never turn their back on another veteran."
