A Tale of Sadness and Bravery —- Sunday, June 9, 2019

The Vietnam Wall came to Delta.

It broke my heart to see all those names…the list just goes on and on and on

Friends and classmates, brothers, husbands, and sons; the wall unfurled each name and date as our dazed eyes took in the enormous loss

Tears constantly filled my eyes

Even as I sit here typing, I still want to cry.

An amazing WWII plane roared across the sky during the remembrance of those who were lost on D Day.

Then I saw a wonderful old gentleman stand and salute the flag.  He wasn’t part of the program, he was a serviceman forever more.

From my world to your heart,

Linda

  1. Gone, but never forgotten.
    My 96 year old father isn’t able to attend celebrations like this any longer, but he played his part in WWII. He landed in his tank on Sword Beach on D-Day 2. He was 21 years old…. one of the lucky ones.

  2. Yes the Traveling wall is quite an experience, a few years back it was at a VFW about 40 miles away. We spent the afternoon there. Very touching. Not everyone can get to Wash DC to see it in person so this is the next best thing 🙂
