Looking for church members listed on Vietnam wall
Blogging live from Washington
While we’re here in our nation’s capital, Bobby Ross Jr. and I plan to visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. I’ve been several times since it opened in 1996. It’s a moving tribute to those who died in the terrible conflict.
Do you know of any Church of Christ members listed among the more than 58,000 names on “The Wall?”We would love to know — and to have the chance to look up their names in person. I’m contemplating a Veterans Day or Memorial Day feature in which we profile some of our members who died in Vietnam. I thought this might be a good start.
We’ll likely visit the memorial Saturday, so please post replies here soon. Thanks.
