  • Vietnam Wall - This is Amazing!

    This is really sobering. First click on a state. When it opens, scroll down to the city where you went to high school and look at the names. Click on the name and it will give details of the person's death, a picture or at least their bio and medals.
    This really is an amazing web site. Someone spent a lot of time and effort to create it.
    I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.

    Pass the link on to others, as many knew wonderful people whose names are listed.

  • Yes, have seen this before, and it is sobering for sure. Only one from my hometown listed but did not know him. I did know several older brothers of friends who went to Nam, and none returned the same. All were drug and alcohol addicts, and a few couldn't cope with the real world after. I turned 18 in 1974 still have my draft card -1A class. That was when the US was bugging out and the war was closing down. I was ready to enlist in the Air Force but my parents suggested I go to college and get a trade/degree since the war was ending.

  • The names of two of my childhood friends are on that wall. Blucher Hall bought it his second day in-country.

  • Two of my schoolmates as well. Glad I made it back with no holes in me. My Brother came home with a Silver Star. He was battalion surgeon for the 16th Ranger Battalion in the Big Red 1. Heavy stuff.
