The "Wall" came to my town
« on: June 22, 2019, 10:37:12 PM »
With the support and effort of a local church and many volunteers.

First time I've seen it.  It was sobering and brought back memories.  I was looking for one specific name and found it with the help of a volunteer.

There were many veterans on the site despite the fact that it was raining off and on.  Most accompanied by friends and family.

I have been to the moving wall twice, last time it was in a town about  half hour away from my house, took me 4 hrs to get there, 50 yrs and  my emotions are still running pretty high.

Over the years I have been to see the traveling wall and the wall in DC a number of times. Usually in the company of fellow Marines from my unit. I will be there in DC on Nov 10th and 11th for a reunion. Then next year as well. Each visit has become more important for me, we an’it youngsters any more, friends are leaving this world to join our brothers on the wall.

It was in out town a couple years ago.
Yes; very sobering.
A good story isn't necessarily a true story.
Complaining is just like passing gas in public; most people don't want to hear it, and the rest just think it's funny.
