“The Moving Wall,” the half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Washington,D.C., recently made its way to the Minnesota StateVeterans’ Cemetery near Camp Ripley.“The Wall” travels throughout America formost of the year as a way to honor the 58,000 men
and women who made the ultimate sacrice during
the Vietnam War. Not just those who gave theirlives, but those who remain missing as well.I remember reports of those who had died or weremissing as I watched the sights and sounds of the waron the evening news out of Johnstown, Pennsylvania.One of the missing was a young man from nearbyGreensburg that I would get to know later.I have also had the honor of knowing andserving with plenty of Vietnam vets. But it’s thosereported as missing in action (MIA) that I have hada decades long connection to.In late 975 I was stationed with the US Army
is amoving experience
