To the men and women of Male Survivor.

Just taking a minute or two this morning to Remember.

We have an outstanding Memorial to the brave men and women who served our country during the Viet Nam era. I believe the black granite comes from the same quary as the stone used in DC's wall.

Our memorial has been a touch stone for me because I'm old enough to be one of the soldiers who passed the torch to these men and women represented....I finished my tour of service in January of 1963.

David,

I'll never forget either. A kid on my street, George Doane, fell too. He was two years older than me so I contented myself with admiring him from afar. He had a motor scooter. I never did see him drive a car.
