The Three Soldiers Memorial is part of the Vietnam War Memorial, located on The National Mall. The memorial is meant to represent the three types of men who joined the Armed Forces during the war: Caucasian, African American, and Latino. This is one of the lesser-known memorials in Washington, D.C., but still one of more interesting ones.

The statue memorial is part of the Vietnam War Memorial, but it was not a part of the original design. It is also not the only statue near this location; the Vietnam Women’s Memorial is nearby. While the memorial is meant to depict diversity, the uniforms were left intentionally vague to as to represent all branches of military service.

The memorial is well-lit at night, and within site of the Vietnam Wall. It’s easy to access along the concrete paths, just a short distance from the Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool.
