For many of us in the leadership of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, this was our war, our memory, our symbol of service and rememberance. I have visited the moving wall once, I saw the name of friends. Once was enough but now I will go again. I will not see the name but a face, a smile, a memory that has not faded. Many names I do not know, our paths crossed briefly in a far away place and time, then they were gone forever. The last time I visitedthe wall, I was with a friend that served in the same company, we told stories and remembered our Company. This time I brave the wall alone, I go alone, no companion can replace the ones thatI served with me.

I will miss the Welcoing Ceremony, I hope many of you will attend and represent the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States.
Make a Difference.
