This is my brother-in-law Paul's finger pointing to a fallen friend's name. Paul is a Vietnam Veteran.
When I took this picture inside my head a voice said "put this picture on the blog". I don't know why but maybe it will mean something to someone. I hope it does.
I don't know if you can read this but if you can it's a moving story. If you can enlarge it to read it, it's worth the trouble. If not, I'll try to copy it into a regular e-mail if you're interested. Just let me know.
This is a picture of some people finding a name they are looking for but also of things people have left as memorials.
There is a sign when you are entering the memorial that says it is Sacred Ground. I feel priviledged to have been there today. It is a sight to see and if you were able to go, great. If not, I'm sorry you missed it.
