The Moving Wall came to Elmira on a very dark, rainy August weekend. People came in bunches, very subdued. The Wall is a good place, a prayerful place, a sad place. The Viet Nam war made that place in many peoples' hearts.
A medal left for those who didn't attend the ceremony. Please don't let this be survivor's guilt; we owe all our "purple hearts" at least a thank you and an assurance of our indebtedness. Glad you made it home, sir or madam. We need our veterans to build the backbone of our nation.
