Vietnam Memorial

WASHINGTON - NOVEMBER 7:  Mark Seeley of Boise, Idaho, kisses where his father John Seeley's name is inscribed in the Vietnam Veterans Memorial during ceremonies to mark The Wall's 25th anniversary at the National Mall November 7, 2007 in Washington, DC.  Seeley's father was a CH-47 Chinook helicopter pilot and was killed in Vietnam in June 1966, three months before Mark started kindergarten. Organizers commemorated the 25th anniversary with "The Reading of the Names," the four-day event during which the over 58,000 names inscribed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial are read aloud. For the fourth time in The Wall's history all of the names were read in Washington, D.C.  (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
