My stepdad, Charles, requested that we start the day at the memorial park in Washington DC. He wanted to see his friend's name on the Vietnam Wall. We arrived and looked up his friend's name in the directory (Jerry Lee), then located the name on the panel and row indicated. It is always such a sobering sight to see the names of those brave souls listed on the wall and walk along the corridor. Every visitor to Washington DC should take that walk and remember those who have gone before us to provide us the freedom we enjoy today.
