An education center planned as a complement to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall earned an important go-ahead from the National Capital Planning Commission, which supporters say is one step closer to a dedicated space for all military services, but critics worry it could be a step backward for the sanctity of the memorial.
The education center is not going to be a memorial for the Afghanistan or Iraq wars, but "this will be a place they all come … until they get their own memorial," he said.
"The unique nature of this whole enterprise is to celebrate service to the country using the synergy of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the magnificence of the site," Mr. Scruggs said. "The whole point of the education center is this is a place to educate young people, visitors to Washington, on the principles of duty, courage and honor."
