Above & Beyond Memorial Exhibit at the NVAM

On Memorial Day 2001, the museum added a stirring and spectacular new exhibit to its already highly praised fine art collection. The work of art, an immense 10 x 40 foot sculpture entitled Above and Beyond, is comprised of imprinted dog tags, one for each of the more than 58,000 service men and women who died in the Vietnam War.

What an amazing piece. Highlighting these heroes this way can humble anyone when they witness the shear magnitude of the many soldiers who died during the Vietnam War. https://www.nvam.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=218&Itemid=54
