    I'm a bit young for Vietnam but I support those Vets all the way. There was one Coastie on The Wall who was MIA, LT Jack Rittichier. I wore his bracelet for years and then lo and behold they brought him home in 2003!

    That's a great tribute to our Viet Nam troops. There's nothing like putting a face with a name to make things personal and more real.

    I'm going to send this link to my older sister. Her usband was killed in Viet Nam in the early 60's.

    Thanks for posting this Anglico!

    Thanks for the post very nice. I remember when we sent the first advisors in in 1950 and the sky's got darker. Need say no more.

    If you want, there's a book called OFFERINGS AT THE WALL from Allen Turner. Your eyes might get little misty. One of the hardest things I did was go to the WALL.

    I got married at Quantico MB 1954. Most of my wedding party that were lifers never made it back from 'Nam. The following year I decided top leave the Marine Corps for a life in the civilian world. I tried to go back in 1965 and was deemed to old...WHAT. Possibly the luckiest thing for it was doubtful I would have made it back because I had used up all my luck in Korea. Korea another war that few today know anything about. I can recommend the DVD "Chosin" for any that might want an insight on that conflict. I served with the 7th Marines in that battle and found this was very well done and accurate. Semper Fi J.

    The traveling WALL came to my area about 10 years ago. I went. One of the toughest things I ever did.

    Thank you for your service. Semper Fi from an old Navy Chief.

    One of my older cousins was in the Marines and was awarded the Silver Star in Korea. My best friend was in the Navy from 1931 through 1956. He died in 2010 at ninety-six. He was a medic with the Marines in the South Pacific in WWII and Korea. I have nothing but the utmost respect for those who served. Welcome home!

    LC, believe me if your cousin received a silver star he was a h*ll of a Marine. The Marine Corps was very stingy with their awards in those days. I had the honor of being present when Capt. Bill Barber, Lt. Col. Ray Davis and PFC Hector Carsalas all performed their actions that resulted in their being awarded the Medal of Honor. If I remember correctly they were presented by President Eisenhower. Semper Fi J.
