While it took almost 60 years for World War II veterans to get a monument in Washington, veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will soon be honored with a tribute on the National Mall.

The group that built the Vietnam Memorial is planning to extend the education center there to include soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Their photos would be displayed alongside those of soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who died in the Vietnam conflict.

Justin Constantine, a veteran from Fairfax, Va., who was shot in Iraq, says many wounded warriors will want to visit the site.
