WASHINGTON (AP) -- It took almost 60 years for World War II veterans to get a monument in Washington. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial opened less than a decade after their war ended.
Now with the Iraq war just over and Afghanistan continuing there are already plans to honor those veterans in a new National Mall tribute in the works.
The group that built the Vietnam memorial tells The Associated Press that it will expand the scope of a planned education center to include soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Their photos would be displayed alongside those of soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who died in the Vietnam conflict.
Justin Constantine, a veteran from Fairfax, Va., who was shot in Iraq, says many wounded warriors will want to visit the site.
