A guest views a section of the 58,282 Soldiers, Marines, Sailors and Airmen names inscribed into The Wall at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The memorial marked its 30th anniversary Nov. 13. The reading of the names during the 2012 tribute marks the fifth time the names of those inscribed on The Wall have been read since the memorial was completed 30 years ago in 1982. The Reading of the Names was first conducted then at Washington National Cathedral, then again at The Wall on the 10th anniversary of its dedication in 1992, then during the 20th and 25th anniversaries. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.
