Vietnam Wall

First click on a state. When it opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear. Then click on their names. It should show you a picture of the person, 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.

The link below is a virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam war with the names, bio's and other information on our lost heroes. Those whore member that timeframe, or perhaps lost friends or family can look them upon this site. Pass the link on to others if you like.

That is truly humbling. I went to High School with three of them. I always knew It, but I never saw It in such detail before.

SER: Have you ever thought about ALL of the things that OUR generation has lived through? It's probably written in a book somewhere, but, our generation has probably witnessed more things than ANY other generation will EVER witness? (I HOPE?) Your post adds a chapter in our lives that we would perhaps not wished on anyone, but It Is a VERY worthwhile service that you have done by posting this page.

I remember one from high school. I remember back when we heard about it in school.

I passed the link along to a couple of Vietnam vets I know.

I don't know anyone personally who was killed in Viet Nam, but I know 3 who where shot.

My ex-brother-in-law was hit 5 times with a machine gun, he has some wicked scars.

Toad, the 60's where the greatest and even into the 70's. There will never be a time like that again.

SER: I GUESS when you consider how many people responded to this post It show just how people forget the PAST and how it related to the future?

Don't jump to conclusions, Toad. I didn't respond to the post because I was really too young and probably too self absorbed at that age to fully know what was going on.

I started to comment several times, but stopped out of respect to those who served. The truth is it didn't touch my life the way it should have. I had an older cousin who was married to a Vietnam veteran. That was the extent I was affected. As children, we were afraid of him. The conception was all the vets were liable to "lose control" at any moment. Shame on those who put those ideas into the heads of impressionable children.

It doesn't mean that I don't care and don't value the bravery, sacrifice and service those men and women gave to our country in our names.
