The Three Soldiers

The Three Soldiers, also known as The Three Servicemen, is a bronze statue on the National Mall in Washington DC, commemorating the Vietnam War.

 

The grouping consists of three young men, armed and dressed appropriately for the Vietnam War era, purposely identifiable as Caucasian, African American, and Hispanic. It was designed to complement the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, by adding a more traditional component, and was unveiled on Veterans Day, 1984.

 

The statue is located next to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.
