And I want to begin with acknowledging the leadership of Jan Scruggs and many sitting here in the front row who began this magnificent journey of building a Vietnam Veterans Memorial many, many years ago. And to you, Jan, and to your board and co-founders, we continue to acknowledge you and thank you for what you do for all of us. And I think this event this morning, recognizing a very special group of individuals, is further testimony to what you started a long, long time ago. And those of us who've had the privilege of being part of that acknowledge it and are grateful for the opportunity to be part of what you started. So to Jan, thank you.

Visited the Vietnam War Memorial replica and even though it wasn't the real thing I was still taken back quite a bit
During a 2011 visit to Washington D.C. I made a point of visiting the World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War Memorials. It is truly my honor to have followed those who served, and especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. In adding up, my wife and I have 21 direct relatives that have served from World War I to today. Only 1, my Great Uncle Brandscombe gave the ultimate sacrifice while flying in WWII. My thoughts and prayers to all the families who have suffered that loss. Freedom isn't free.
I remember visiting the Vietnam War Memorial as a kid, seeing all those names on the wall. The sacrifice absolutely blew me away.

Sue and I visited the California Vietnam War Memorial today. Time well spent. We are so appreciative to the individuals and families who sacrificed their all. Grateful we can show respect to them as we reflect on their sacrifice today. We looked up two names on the Wall who Sue and I knew personally and were killed in the Vietnam War. One was a young man named George Waldron. Kind of a quiet young man. We sat next to each other in Journalism Class. He helped his father run a carpet cleaning business so he didn't have a lot of spare time. He had a maturity brought on by hard work. He worked full time in his dad's business after his high school graduation. He decided to serve his country and joined the Army Airborne. In 1966, two weeks after his 20th birthday, he stepped on a land mine and was killed. The second young man was Howard "Howdy" Earl Cramblet. Howdy was Sue's cousin and was about 4 years older than her. He lived in Crescent City with his parents. His father was a teacher at the local high school ...

A Special Memorial Day Message From our General Manager, Travis Sherven Freedom: "It is an ideal for which I hope to live for and to see realized. But, My Lord, if it needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die." --Nelson Mandela As a member of a military family, today is especially important and touching to me. We all have an idea of what a hero is. To me, a hero puts on the uniform, straps up the boots, shoulders a weapon and serves side-by-side with others of the same ilk. Soldiers that stand guard. They rush into places and situations that would terrify most of us. They honor this great country, its citizens, and the democracy that insures our freedom. Today we thank and remember with distinction and reverence those who laid the costliest of sacrifices upon the altar of freedom. To perish in the act of maintaining our liberty and supporting this strong nation cannot go unnoticed. I have stood solemnly at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, seen the haunting beauty of Arlington National Cemete ...

I've been thinking tonight of a young man from Farmington whose last name was Cleve who gave his life during the war in Vietnam. I remember going to the Vietnam War Memorial and tracing his name from the engraving and sending it to my Mother to give to his Mother - seems like she lived on Boyce near my Mother, Virginia Johnson.

Please remember the sacrifices these men and all the servicemen and women who did the supreme sacrifice so that we can enjoy today's activities without fear. RIP Tom, Carter and Dave. Gone but not forgotten.

I am a Vietnam Vet '68. I want to thank all of the active military and veterans worldwide for your service. Unless you have been in a war zone, where your life is on the line 24/7, it is almost impossible to describe what it is like, when you are always under hostile enemy fire. I lost so many treasured friends in Vietnam. When I visited the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington DC, I cried like a baby. I want to thank Alan Stock, the talented and award winning talk radio host at KDWN Radio for posting this. Alan you are a treasured friend and client.
This is awesome. Glen Clemons we need to check this out 'Mysterious' Vietnam War Memorial | "Cycle ride from Tomichi Creek off of Highway 50 near Gunnison, CO up to the Continental Divide, where we found this war memorial tucked away in seclusion. You won't find it on any maps. An old local at the Tomichi Trading Post said the Park Rangers keep it off maps...the story is that a Vietnam Vet somehow used a chopper to sneak the pieces in. If anyone knows the true story, I'd love to hear it." Some additional info can be found at - To see on Google Maps go to:

Visited the Traveling Wall, the Vietnam War Memorial today. I was without words.
I had so much fun taking my Aunt Sandy and Uncle Ken's Senior *Citizens* pictures today. This summer they will celebrate 50 years of marriage and we sure did find the places around town that represent them as a couple over the years. I think my most favorite part was visiting the Vietnam War Memorial with my uncle for his first time and standing with him, my mom Barb Fryer McDaniel and Kari Selk singing the national anthem. I love that it meant so much to him that we did that together and that he got to see his friend's name on the wall. The war memorials are really a special place. What an honor to have the Illinois fallen represented here in Springfield.
Aloha All.Vietnam Veterans, mark your calendars for the 27th of April, 1100 hours for our VVA Chapter 785's participation with "Black April," recognizing the Fall of Saigon, 30 April 1975. This day is known by the Vietnamese as "Ngay Quoc Han," roughly translated, as "the day of national resentment." Our VVA Chapter 785 of which we have over 800 Vietnamese AVVA Members has been a participant for decades and now meets at the Vietnam War Memorial since it's dedication in 2003. We our honored to join our Vietnamese Allies, our brothers, who we fought with side by side, in the Vietnam War, against communism. We are also honored to recognize and acknowledge this day when Saigon fell under communist rule. Oooorah and Semper Fi. Monsoon
As we face a new year, I recall visiting with three old friends, a few years back, at a park in the nation's capital. It seems like only yesterday that we were all together, but actually it has been 42 years. There was a crowd at the park that day, and it took us a while to connect, but with the aid of a book we made it. I found Harry, Bruce and Paul. In 1970-72 we were gung *** young fighter pilots on America and Constellation off Vietnam, the cream of the crop of the U.S. Navy, flying F-4J Phantoms. Now their names are on that 500-foot-long Vietnam War Memorial. I am hesitant to visit the wall when I'm in Washington DC because I don't trust myself to keep my composure. Standing in front of that somber wall, I tried to keep it light, reminiscing about how things were back then. We used to joke about our passionate love affair with an inanimate flying object-we flew. We marveled at the thought that we actually got paid to do it. We were not draftees but college graduates in Vietnam by choice, opting for t ...

Had a nice walk around DC today. Our last stop was the Vietnam War Memorial. I was silent and respectful and saddened after stopping at the WW II WW I and Korean War Memorials. Openly broke down at that long black wall. Later I will post a letter I saw at the base of the memorial from one veteran to his brothers who did not come home. After giving the whole thing some thought I have come up with what I think should be a justified and long over due move. The President of the United States, Our Commander in Chief of the Armed forces should be moved from the White House and be forced to live on the grounds of Arlington Memorial Cemetery so that every time He makes decision involving our young service men the rows of fallen youth can remind him of it's cost.

In honor of Veterans Day, I'm reposting these pics of my dad when we went to D.C. in 2007. Dad is standing in front of the panel at the Vietnam War Memorial that bears the name of his friend that was KIA right beside him. I had never seen my dad cry until that day. He was very emotional and needless to say so was I. I was blessed to have been there with him that day. Dad I love you, and you will always be my favorite veteran!!!

Jake funny from this weekend in DC, provided by Dan: As we made our way around the National Mall on bicycles and made our various stops at the Washington Monument, White House, Vietnam War Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Memorial, FDR Memorial, MLK Memorial, Tidal Basin, and Jefferson Memorial...I kept saying to him that our last stop before heading back to the hotel would be the Air and Space Museum. He asked me about that a couple of times and I'd say something like "They have the actual airplanes and space ships in there." He kept having a confused look on his face. Finally as we were nearing it "the light went on" and he said "OH. Air AND Space Museum. I thought you were saying 'Aaron's Pace Museum' and wondered who Aaron Pace was and why there is a museum for him." LOL, that's my boy!

Congressman Hunter office asked me why I am not in Washington D.C. for the Vietnam War Memorial and the answer is: A mistake happened and the flight/schedule information wasn't sent to me. I am bummed The person I am working with in the search for my uncle and the American advisors is Veterans Representative Tommy Marquez. It's good to talk to another former military man. When he asked for my email it went something like this: Delta, Echo, Quebec, Uniform, Alpha, November, Golf, Lima, Echo Go to show you can take a man out of the military, but you can't take the discipline out of a man :)
This photo reminds me so much of my brother Gerry who was in Vietnam during the war. He came back intact but went through *** when he was there, as did most of the others. God bless them all for doing what their country called them to do. The sacrificed being home with their families, all the comforts of home and endured horror, pain, suffering, loneliness, physical hardship, terrible loss - and so much more. We owe them everything, as we do those who are giving their best for America now. They are all "the few" who risk everything for "the many" who risk nothing (and that would be the rest of us). We have a wonderful replica here in the Pensacola area of the DC Vietnam War Memorial. It's 3/4th the size of the original but has the same effect, with all those thousands of names displayed. I'm very proud we have something here to honor them -it's in a park setting overlooking Pensacola Bay.

Memorial Day 2013 Remarks There are 31 names inscribed on the Vietnam War Memorial. And since the dedication of the monument on Veterans Day in 1993, first under the rotunda at City Hall and starting in 2004 here in this park, it became in many ways hallowed ground as family, friends, and veterans have gathered there from time to time for both public and private remembrances. Flowers were often times left at the base of the Memorial. Sometimes candles were left burning. Poignant notes were written and left. But those 31 sons of Pasadena are not just names on a memorial. They were men, some of them only teenagers, who shared the same hopes and dreams that we all have. I want to briefly tell you about a few of them. *Some had made the military their career. Master Sgt. Thomas J. Sanchez was one. "Top" Sanchez was born in Pasadena and was a Golden Gloves boxing champion at John Muir High School. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1950 and was awarded the Bronze Star with three clusters for bravery i ...
Today I basically spent the day soaking up tributes to American history - some of it inspiring, some of it terrible. I saw the original Star-Spangled Banner. I touched a piece of the Berlin Wall. I walked the acres of Arlington National Cemetery. I saw the seemingly endless names on the Vietnam War Memorial. Here's what I was reminded of so very strongly: America is a great nation. We have had a short, but eventful, world-changing history. It has had its dark moments and proud moments. It is not inherently better or worse than any other nation in the world, but it's mine. My heritage. My mistakes and glories and life. It's all a part of me. And that's why I'm proud to be an American. No inherent superiority, just a story that I get to be a part of.

Seeing the 'Wall' required me to control my anger. Half of those visiting the 'Wall' have no sense of emotion, it is merely a curiosity. To those, I had to fightback the anger and not explain to them, why they do not deserve the valor of these young men. If these guys could somehow appear out of thin air and evaluate what has happened to their country, try telling them, "Thank you for your service". Their reply would be along the lines of "Kiss my a--!. Yeah, "Thank you for your service", while we vote in idealogues who worship Marx.
When I was a young USAF officer and aviator, I learned of the heroism of Lance Peter Sijan, a graduate of the USAF Academy.I located "Lance Sijan, Capt. USAF" on the 'Wall'. Along with Capt. Sijan, awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously and all of the other nearly forgotten names, I thought, would these men believe what has become of their beloved country, in unison they would all say, "You're kidding me, I gave my life for this!". BENGAHZI!, need I say more?
This past Sunday, I went to the traveling wall displayed at Marie Kerr Park in Palmdale. I was at the park to watch my daughter's volleyball game and saw that the 'Wall' was being displayed in the amphitheater. I was a bit apprehensive to enter the area where the 'Wall' was on exhibition. In February, 1985, while going through O.T.S., we were flown to D.C. to tour the Pentagon, the Capitol Building and in our tour, we by coincidence happened by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. It was quite a somber and moving setting(the 'Wall' was relatively new). The reason for my apprehension at visiting this replica wall was not unfounded. The mood of those few in attendance was much different than what I saw and felt during my visit to actual monument some 27 years ago. What I saw were a bunch of folks who were not in a somber mood, but several who were behaving like the replica 'Wall' was nothing more than a curiosity. Taking pictures of each other in front of the 'Wall' as if it was the Space Shuttle on static d ...

Friday AM, I am headed to Hawai'i to attend and photograph the dedication of the nation's latest Vietnam Memorial. Located at The The Punchbowl, it is an addition to an existing WWII and Korean memorial. I have wrangled a press pass and will have access to a lot of interesting things. I expect to meet the designer, the builder and Max Cleland who is the head of the American Battle Monument Commission. You may remember that Mr. Cleland is a triple amputee Vietnam vet who has served in many capacities after his return from the war. This is all very exciting for me and I hope to be able to do the memorial and the event justice. I have, also, located a memorial on the North Shore of O'ahu that I expect to be able to get some pics of, too. I don't know if I will post again until our return on the weekend of the 17th. Internet service was spotty and or VERY expensive when we were there in March. I'm talking $10 a minute! We'll see what I can work out this trip!

Once upon a time, in the youthful days of my generation, our government chose to involve the people of this nation in a civil war being fought in a far distant land. Ten years and 58,000 young lives later, that same government concluded it had miscalculated the results anticipated and abandoned the people of that distant land to their fate. I would not presume to comprehend the wisdom of the leadership then in power as to why it was necessary to insert ourselves into the conflict between the North and South of Vietnam, however, the lasting impact for the loss of so many should not be diminished by the ineptness of those who made the choices that destroyed them in their prime. We must honor the fallen for their sacrifice...for they did not falter on the battlefields of that horrific place where their government...and all of us...sent them to die. The Traveling Vietnam Memorial is at Harmon Park in Mayfield, Kentucky.
A memorial service will be held today for architect Allen Marshall, who designed South Carolina’s Vietnam War Memorial in Columbia – the first state memorial to those who died in the war, and one of the largest outside Washington, D.C. – more than a quarter-century ago.
I think the Vietnam Memorial Wall is something this country got right. Please Read on . . . A little history most people will never know. Interesting Veterans Statistics off the Vietnam Memorial Wall There are 58,267 names now listed on that polished black wall, including those added in 2010. The names are arranged in the order in which they were taken from us by date and within each date the names are alphabetized. It is hard to believe it is 36 years since the last casualties. The first known casualty was Richard B. Fitzgibbon, of North Weymouth , Mass. Listed by the U.S. Department of Defense as having been killed on June 8, 1956. His name is listed on the Wall with that of his son, Marine Corps Lance Corporal Richard B. Fitzgibbon III, who was killed on Sept. 7, 1965. There are three sets of fathers and sons on the Wall. 39,996 on the Wall were just 22 or younger. 8,283 were just 19 years old. The largest age group, 33,103 were 18 years old. 12 soldiers on the Wall were 17 years old. ...
My first visit to the Vietnam Memorial. I was able to find the name of Peter Mathes, a DHS classmate who lost his life at war. I can still picture him as a 16 year old.

This weekend is Veterans Day. It's a day we set aside to honor all of the brave men and women who have served this great Nation in her military. As I looked at this photo of the Vietnam War Memorial a war that many of us served in I am reminded of why it took me over 35 years to go and see because when I finaly did it sucked my breath away.Even now as I write this my eye's are filled with tears and I'm am even more mindful of why I joined. It was because of the sacrifices our Fathers made in World War II.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a national memorial in Washington, D.C. that honors U.S. service members who fought and died in the Vietnam War.The Memorial Wall is 494 feet long and 10 feet high and contains 51,191 names. Since Roe v. Wade was passed in 1973 there have been 53,600,000 known abortions. That is over 1000 times more innocent humans killed on our own soil by our own hands than all the men and women killed in that war. The Vietnam Memorial is roughly 500 ft long and to build a similar memorial for the Babies who have died by abortion it would stretch for 94.58 miles. So look at your children and grandchildren and remember that when you go vote tomorrow. Vote for LIFE ! Vote for the only candidate that apposes killing unborn babies and allowing our service men to die unaided after requesting back up more than once. There is Only one choice in my mind and its NOT obama...

A very powerful and moving ceremony at the traveling Vietnam War Memorial. It is in Michigan for only the second time and its at Gull Lake High School. Open 24 hours until Sunday at 4:00. You must see this if you can.
We saw the Vietnam War Memorial, climbed the Lincoln Memorial (always a thrill!) and walked around the edge of the WWII Memorial. Then we spent the afternoon at the Natural History Museum, an old favorite. Said hello to the dinosaurs and the Hope Diamond and all of the fabulous minerals. Loved the Hall of Human Origins (I'm a great believer in evolution). And then came to the last of our D.C. hotels. A very fabulous urban micro-hotel called the Eldon Hotel Luxury Suites. Oh, man... you could hole up here for a week. Gorgeous and well-appointed, and yet far less expensive than the one we were just in. Glen said it was nice to be in a new space not associated with preparing for his argument!
Tomorrow, we change hotels and become tourists together for a day. Planning to see the Vietnam War Memorial and some other things, and perhaps a walk along the C&O Canal in Georgetown. When I use to live up here part-time, those were my favorite things to do. Then on Friday, we'll both leave D.C. Glen will fly home and I'll start driving back to Atlanta. I don't know my route yet, but I'd like to hypotenuse from D.C. over to the southwestern corner of Virginia and then take I-85 back down. If there's not deep snow over there, still. It's two days away, and I will check before deciding. Heading back to Margie Osheroff's, where I'll re-load my art show stuff and head home after that. Don't quite know the timing... I just know I have to be home by Tuesday to vote. Early voting didn't start before I left last week.
Field trip today and tomorrow! Library and archives today and Vietnam war memorial tomorrow!
The nation's first dual-war memorial is dedicated to veterans of the Korean and Vietnam conflicts.  Marble memorial with two life-size bronze statues was formally dedicated on Veterans Day 1988.  Located at the entrance of Wyandotte County Lake Park. 
Our Capital is a beautiful city. There is so much to see. We walked from Dupont Circle, we stopped to see The Philips Collection. We saw the White House from a distance, the National Monument is beautiful from all angles. The WWII Memorial, the Reflecting Pond, the Korean War Memorial and then there is the Vietnam War Memorial; but there is so much more to see. I wl definitely want to come back some day.
Moving, heart-breaking, inspiring. Go to the travelling Vietnam War Memorial at the Greene County Fairgrounds this weekend. This is just a powerful as the real one in D.C.
