Subject: Dog Tags Vietnam Memorial: Above and Beyond

Gents,

I am reading a book that has a photo of a Vietnam Memorial I have never heard of. Has anyone seen the 'dog tags' memorial at the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum in Chichago? The artist had "Dog tags [made for] the 58,211 American service personnel who died in the Vietnam War, [displayed hanging] from the ceiling of the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum...in Chicago." The memorial is displayed in a giant formation, 10ft x 40ft (dog tags are one inch apart).

"The ... Above and Beyond Memorial [is] like an enormous windchime, made from thousands of military dog tags, one for each of the more than 58,000 American service men and women who died in the Vietnam War."
