Alongside the State Street Bridge across the Chicago River and part of the riverwalk is the Chicago Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Chicago claims it is the largest Vietnam War memorial outside of Washington, D.C. The memorial provides a quiet, beautiful escape in the heart of the city and is a small greenscape. There is a small rectangle reflecting pool and the walls around the pool contain plaques honoring the military services and there is a wall of etched names of all those who were lost during the war.
