To the Editor:
Having visited and often helped at the Vietnam Moving Wall in a number of other locations, Oswego topped them all. From allowing us veterans to set the panel with the name of a friend to the final walk-by at the closing, it was amazing. The Sunday worship service and Gold Star-Blue Star Family Recognition Service were especially well done.
Thank you to Rick Gardner for allowing me to be an unofficial helper at the Wall. To the other volunteers, the “guy with the book” thanks you. The stories and comments of visitors who came to find and touch a name were amazing. I truly believe the Wall has healing power.
