Outrageous Yes, Those Are Kids Climbing on a Vietnam Memorial
The Vietnam Women's Memorial, dedicated to the women of the U.S. who served in the Vietnam War, is one of many sites on the National Mall that honors those who have sacrificed for our country.
Matthew Munson was visiting the powerful memorial when he saw parents encourage their young children to climb on the monument for a photo op.
Munson snapped a picture of the kids treating the memorial like their personal jungle gym, as veterans looked on, appearing angry and hurt.
Munson's photo has sparked a debate about if it was disrespectful of the parents to encourage their children to play on the memorial.
What do you think of the parents' decision? Should they have stopped it? Or was it merely innocent fun? Let us know what you think in the comments.
