The Wall


My alma mater is building a Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall on campus. They wanted to have a family member at the dedication. They found family for all but two and gave them to me to find this morning. All I got was a name and a hometown.

Found who I think is a brother of one, if he will call me back.

Got in touch with the sister of the other. She was thrilled to talk about her brother. Said she loved listening to my Southern drawl. Said it reminded her of home. Also said she was amazed I had found her since she has an unlisted phone number.

The two guys I was looking for received the medals and patches shown above. Found them on The Virtual Wall - Vietnam Veterans Memorial website.
