Today I went to Richland to see the Traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and Museum. It is here until Aug. 2nd. It was very moving. I would recommend going to see it. The wall is a half-scale replica -exact to the letter and inch-of the original Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C. It travels across America. It has 58,000 names on it.
I can't think of the Vietnam war without thinking of James W Herrick Jr. Jim was from my hometown and his younger brother was my classmate and friend from K-12. I just had to go see it and also pay my respects to these HEROS of our country and think of the sacrifice they and their families have made.
