North America - Washington, DC - Day 2

On Day 2 of my visit to Washington D.C., I saw The National Air and Space Museum, The Vietnam Veteran's Memorial, and The Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Memorial.

I looked for the dog tags on each of the 3 statues.  I found one around the neck.   
A dog tag on a shoe. I did not find the 3rd statues tag.  I'll have to go back, again.

The Vietnam Women's Memorial is a memorial dedicated to the women of the United States who served in the Vietnam War, most of whom were nurses

One of the best, I could have spent all day here. There are many exhibits, a movie to watch and if you want a snack there is a small food court. So much to see.
