    Was not a service member due to health issues but I'm very grateful for all of you that were and sincerely thankful for those that gave all.

    We have the traveling wall coming to our area next week. How many have seen it?

    I saw it about 20 years ago, one of the times it came to Quakertown, PA (my Birthplace).
    I know I could never take seeing the real wall in DC, so I've never gone.
    The traveling one was bad enough.

    R.I.P. my Brothers & all those who gave their ALL.

    Sunrise for me, locally, was 5:43 AM. The Stars and Stripes was up outside our front door at 5:44 AM. R.I.P. my Brothers and Sisters.

    My monitor is suddenly out of focus.

    Sad Day here. Went to see the Traveling Vietnam Wall yesterday. Although I live very close Washington DC I have not seen the wall there. I saw names of those that I knew on the wall and I can't imagine those who severed with these departed brothers and knew them in combat feel like seeing the Wall. (the memories returning of your days there and the loss that you saw) It was done with a lot of respect and dignity. May they all rest in peace.

    Hope if it comes to your area you can bring your self to visit it.

    I saw it when it came to Memorial Park, in Quakertown, PA. Very Sad.
    And to top it off I had my left leg in a cast, and had to walk on crutches for about 200 yards from the parking lot to the display & back, and no place to sit along the way.
    If you can get around good, you can go to the tents, and they have books you can look up names & find out which panel your friend or loved one is on, so you can see their names personally.
    I found my classmates names & some of the guys from my outfit in 'Nam who didn't make it back. RIP.........

    Today's modern world they had the local high school ROTC there with computers that located the panels for any name you were looking for. Then they escorted you to the wall and the proper panel to see the names you were looking for. Golf cart rides for the disabled from parking to the wall. Very nicely done.
