The Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall, located on the Mall in Washington, DC can now be viewed online and specific names can be searched for. It's not the same as being there but for those who can't make the trip it's a welcome addition to the original tribute that has proved to be such a moving success.

Implications - Initiatives that give people from all over the world the ability to access historical and cultural sites via the Internet offer them the chance to live, experience and enjoy history regardless of their means to travel. This is an example of the power of the Internet and its ability to break down barriers and bring the world together.
