The lady in the video is my mother . . . the news people pronounced her name wrong, but at least they spelled it right.

As you should be.. with a media who only reports the bad it is good to have reminders we are still a very caring country at heart.

Will do.

If you get a chance you should drive over to see it in person.  It is impressive.

Oh I'll definitely go see it, just don't know if I'll make the dedication or not.

As well you should be! When you see them tell them that an old Vietnam vet you know said thank you with tears in his eyes!

The dedication ceremony was both beautiful and moving.  It was heartwarming to see so many people participating in and attending this event.

My mother said she appreciates everyone's "thank you's" and she said "Thank You" to all of our vet's.

Here are a few pictures:

Dedication wall.

The guys are just plain awesome.


Very poignant picture!
