Today Veteran Joe took me to a VFW Post in Warrenville, IL to see a replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall. There were so many names on it I got a little sad. :( Then there were flags with names of soldiers who died. Veteran Joe said they are only dead if we forget their names. That is why they had someone reading the names of everyone on the Wall. I met some people who were glad I was there but they didn't want their picture taken...and that's ok. I think that this Memorial Day will have a new meaning for me. I hope it does for you too. :) LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry
