Do you know about "The Three Servicemen" in Washington, D.C.?

"The Three Servicemen" is a bronze statue, on the Washington, D.C. National Mall commemorating the Vietnam War. It was created and designed to complement the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, by adding a more traditional component to the Memorial.

Did you know that The Vietnam Veterans Memorial was designed by a 21-year old Yale University architecture student, Maya Ying Lin from Athens, Ohio out of a total 1,421 entries received as part of the design competition.

Did you know that "The Three Servicemen", unveiled on Veterans Day, 1984, was designed by Frederick Hart, who placed third in the original memorial design competition.
