a link to our past

I received this in an email, and while I don't forward a whole lot of things, I want to share this one.  So many who fought in Vietnam were my generation.  If you're like me, you have moved away from the area where you grew up, and may have lost touch.  This is one way to check in.

Vietnam Wall
First click on a state.  When it opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear.  Then click on their names.  It should show you a picture of the person, or at least their bio and medals.
This really is an amazing web site.  Someone spent a lot of time and effort to create it.
I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those who served in  Vietnam sacrificed for our country.
The link below is a virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam war with the names, bio's and other information on our lost heroes.  Those who remember that time frame, or perhaps lost friends or family can look them up on this site.  Pass the link on to others, as many knew wonderful people whose names are listed.
