A General's view - A Marines' Marine

Above and beyond - what dedication looks like


Do Americans really understand what their servicemembers have given? Sure, those of you that visit OneMarinesview.com understand, but the youth of America, do they understand the vast amount of dedication many warriors have given until they had to give all?


I always said “if I could only take even one class of high school graduating seniors to Afghanistan for a couple of months, perhaps they would be a bit more grateful for what they are offered here in America, like fresh drinking water. “ Like that, I would be more than happy to take the same group to this museum and just them fathom what dedication looks like.


When visitors first enter the museum, they will hear a sound like wind chimes coming from above them and their attention will be drawn upward 24 feet to the ceiling of the two-story high atrium.
Dog tags of the more than 58,000 service men and women who died in the Vietnam War hang from the ceiling of the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum in Chicago on Veterans Day, November 11, 2010. The 10-by-40-foot sculpture, entitled Above & Beyond, was designed by Ned Broderick and Richard Steinbock. The tens of thousands of metal dog tags are suspended 24 feet in the air, 1 inch apart, from fine lines that allow them to move and chime with shifting air currents. Museum employees using a kiosk and laser pointer help visitors locate the exact dog tag with the imprinted name of their lost loved ones.
