Long Description:
In Boston, within the Back Bay Fens park in the Fenway section of the city, there is a grouping of three war memorials arranged around a circle. One of these memorials is the Vietnam War Memorial.

The memorial is near the Muddy River, not far from a bridge that is near the Museum of Fine Arts. The memorial is also near the rose garden.

The Vietnam War Memorial is a small installation, compared to the World War I memorial nearby. This memorial has a stone plaza area, with a map of the country of Vietnam embedded in it. Flanking the map are two stone slabs for use as benches. The memorial is a squarish monument that has three columns with names engraved in them. On top is the word, "Vietnam" and the years, "1962-1975."
