Money at Vietnam Women’s Memorial?

Vietnam Nurses Memorial

The_Money_Hand-3910On a recent tour past the Vietnam Women’s (Nurses) Memorial, I noticed the dying man’s hand filled with money.

What is that about?

I’ve passed this memorial near the Vietnam Wall many times and never seen money much less overflowing from the hand. Frankly, it’s a little insulting despite undoubtedly well intentioned. But, write a check to the National Park Service if you want to help.
