This summer Buck came to visit us in SE Pennsylvania. He had one request, to visit Washington DC and the memorials to those who served. As a Vietnam veteran it was a special time for him. One of his goals was to walk the length of the wall - he succeeded. On our way to the wall, Buck took in a quiet moment at the Lincoln Memorial. Reflecting...
We came to Washington so Buck could visit the Vietnam Memorial. It was his first visit here. So long after his service and so long after the war. There were lots of stops and pauses when he reflected and then shared with Chris and me the stories of those he served with whose names were on the wall.
Arlington National Cememtery - Ampitheater at the Tomb of the Unknow Soldiers. This was the last stop on our visit to Washington DC with Buck.
At the Korean War Memorial there are images within the wall and reflections on the wall of soldiers on patrol.
It was an honorfor me and Chris to take Buck to DC. There were many quiet moments and then times of reflection when he shared deep and personal memories from his service in Vietnam.
