Say Their Names

On November 8, 2017 I participated in the Reading Of the Names at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall I’m Washington DC. It affected me deeply. Something told me to look up the date of death of the first man whose name I read. I was surprised to find it was today as was all thirty men whose names I read. I was not even born yet when these young men died.

They all died on May 13,1967.
