Memorials

We found out that we had a personal connection to some of the memorials in Washington, which made them even more special, if possible.  On the Vietnam War Memorial Wall, we found Emma’s cousin’s name – Roger D. Bell – with a little help from the volunteers there.  Just looking at that wall with panel after panel after panel, with hundreds of names on each one – overwhelming.get-attachment

And at the World War II Memorial we found my daddy’s uncle’s name, who was the first person killed in that war from Rockdale County, GA.  This was on a computer at the visitor’s center there.get-attachment

We finished up our day at Arlington National Cemetery, where we found the memorials for the crews of the Challenger and of the Columbia just as it got to be time for the gates to close.  It was just a very, very meaningful day.get-attachment
