THE WAR MEMORIALS. Every year millions of people travel to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., to think, remember, or gently touch the mirror-like walls. But this cherished monument, which has become the capital’s most visited spot, was almost never built.
How did controversy and racism nearly derail the building of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial? This story and others are uncovered in THE WAR MEMORIALS. Witness the silent ceremonies at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and visit the eternal flame at the gravesite of John F. Kennedy. From the unforgettable vision of Arlington Cemetery’s endless white crosses to the stirring United States Marine Corps Memorial, this program examines the country’s legendary war memorials and the heroes who inspired them.
