my beloved cousin,even though we barely met before you were taken from us soooo young, we all remember you in our hearts each and every day and everything you gave up for a country that had not right to send you over there( being learing different) you need to know you are not forgotten and are forever loved.

REFLECTIONS FROM THE MOVING WALL". I am a monument to a black period in this countries history.I am the Vietnam wall.,composed to two angled granite walls,inscribed with the names of fifty eight thousand,one hundred thirty four American men and women who died in hell (that was Vietnam) Many people come to see me. strangely they come mostly in silence-old people,young people,children,mothers,fathers,widows,and veterans.all for reasons of their own.they bring gifts,pictures,letters,flowers,poems and cigarettes.the letters speak of grief and loneliness and regret.they ask forgiveness.they are an out pouring of pain.the people softly touch names on my face.they water my grass with tears.then they leave in silence and I hope in peace.for I am more than two stone walls.I am a thank you from a nation that forgot.I am a long past due apology.I am healing for wounds too long left untended.I am a tribute paid to fallen warriors.I AM THE VIETNAM WALL. "America has forgotten the wars.will she remember her warriors"? You may be gone , BUT YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.

Wish I'd had a chance to know you.
I first found out about my hero cousin when I went to Washington D.C for a class trip. I tried looking at the wall to find him but I could not.I really wanted to find him so the rest of my family could also again "see him". I had to do a report on a family member who had served in a war and my mother again recommeded I use my cousin. I was looking at Christmas time the most holy time of the year, what a nice surprise to find him now. I would really like to have had a chance to hear from men who knew him because my family doesn't like to talk about him and his death.To the vet's that are still here and those that are not I want to say "thank you, and God Bless You".
