|Vietnam War Protest, November 15, 1969|
|There are 58,272 names of soldiers engraved on The Wall. This number is still growing.|
We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
Back when I was in High School, I sent for a POW/MIA bracelet. If you're around my age or older, you know what I'm talking about. In doing research for this post, I found THE WALL site. Please go visit this site. For those of us who lived through the turmoil of those years during the Vietnam War, this site is mandatory. Also mandatory will be a trip to Washington, DC to actually pay my respects at The Wall.
I was able to find out information about Maj. MICHAEL OWENS MCELHANON, the soldier who's name is on my memorial bracelet. Unfortunately, I must still keep my bracelet and keep hoping that now Col. McElhanon, will come home soon.
