Everyone should pass this on.

If you have a FB page, it's a FB site.

Thanks Knarfster. Since I am a Vietnam veteran, it brought tears to my eyes. I have never been to the Vietnam Memorial, but my son has, and saw the name of my childhood friend on it.

I love that painting, "Reflections" because I came home and sold cemetery property with a briefcase ... just like that painting depicts.

The painting emotes all kinds of feelings but that semi-transparent wall on the float is just genius, with our bro's on the other side.

Must go.

I’ll never forget it.

I could narrate the entire experience...but it’s best you see it for yourself.

It drags you in...and once you get there and look back.

Yeah.

Must see.

Thank you Jane for providing the link. I just sent it to my email buddies who served in Vietnam. I’m sure they will be as moved as you and I are.
