Vietnam Wall

This is a truly amazing web site.  It took someone a great deal of time and effort to create it.  I found it sobering. First select a state, then you can select by city to view a list of those that paid the ultimate price.  Select the name & you will view the details of the person's death, a picture or at lest their bio & medals. I hope that everyone who reviews this will appreciate the sacrifices of those who served in this war and the sacrifices they made for this great country.  Click here to go to the site.
