Special notice- Serious tone awhile


This morning I went over to the mobile display of the Vietnam War Memorial in nearby Wadsworth, Ohio. I will take the next few days to get together some rather serious posts. So take the next few days when you come here to reflect on a time in United States history that tore the country apart. Just the thoughts of this were somber for me as I looked at the wall, the tributes and talked to one of the veterans. I also got information on one whom I knew via one of my older cousins. I will put in some of my editorial comments, but I will shoot from the heart. No flippant comments and my usual characteristics will be on hold for the next few days.

I figure there will be some google searches that will bring people here and out of respect I want to treat this with the same tone as I experienced this morning as I visited this display.

I visited this traveling "wall" back in the fall when it came to our town. Actually, we were part of a motorcycle escort for the wall from nashville to Dickson. Very emotional but made me very proud. My uncle was killed in Vietnam at the age of 20. My family and I are very devoted to supporting our military. Thanks for posting about this.

We also went to see it. As a veteran and his wife it was very emotional for us. I will be posting pictures and insights on my blog School is in Session.
