The Moving Wall

The weekend is winding down and it has been raining off and on since yesterday. This morning while it was still partly sunny, we took off for the park to visit the VIETNAM VETERANS MEMORIAL MOVING WALL. I took some photos, but have not moved all of them from the camera to the computer yet. This is not the first time that the wall has been in our area, but it is our first visit. Words can't describe the feeling of seeing the expanse of panels with over 58,000 names inscribed. It is such somber sight and yet such a beautiful memorial. I hope that you will have the opportunity to see it too. Until the next time, hugs to all! Jan

The Vietnam Memorial has to be the single most awesome and emotional man-made structure in the world!

My dad is there, he died in the Vietnam war in 1972, over Laos. His body has never been found. His right wing got blown off & well, my dad being the navigator & therefore there isn't any evidence of his body.
His name is: Lt. Col., Henry Paul Brauner. If you look it up online, you can see what I wrote.
