Dear Editor:

As Memorial Day comes and goes, I seek and find names of comrades on the WALL.

We shared bread, laughter, hostilities, and tears.

They are Forever 19 and I am 70 and the only reason my name does not appear on the sculpture is by the Grace of God.

I salute the ones that did not come home and honor those that returned.
