I visited the Vietnam Moving Wall several times while it was in Comanche. On one of those trips out to the site, I was excited to see Comanche 3rd graders doing the same thing. I don’t know how much a 3rd grader is capable of understanding, but some day those same kiddos all grown up will know that every name on that wall represents a body that fell during a bloody conflict.
I viewed the wall with Vietnam veteran, Chuck Ratliff, and his wife, Carolyn, and if you haven’t read Chuck Ratliff’s story, you need to do so. He has spent years trying to find the families of those buddies of his who fell…just so that he can tell them the things that all families need to know.
And one last time here at United, we send out a huge thank you to those involved in bringing the Wall to Comanche.
