    It's fine posted here, or if you'd like it could go in LE & Military. Just let one of the Mods know if you want it moved.

    Yeah The Possum really tugs at your heart strings singing that song.

    Here is George singing 50,000 Names on Youtube.

    As a Viet Nam Era vet and someone who knows some names posted on The Wall any tribute holds special meaning to me. One of the best tributes was done by the Statler Brothers. I can remember having to pull to the side of the road when hearing this song, not ashamed to say it brought tears to my eyes, and still does.

    Now there are tears in my eyes for memories of my Friends whose manes are upon that black granite wall. I know the tears will last until I crossover to the other side.

    I like to think that those looking down on us are happier knowing we haven't forgotten. I think of my lost friends often. Thanks for posting.
