HI, I JUST GOT DONE READING YOUR STORY OF YOUR DAD IN VIETNAM. I CAME ACROSS IT WHILE LOOKING FOR, IT MAY SOUND WEIRD, VETS WHO GAVE THEIR LIFE ON MY BIRTHDAY. I HOPE IT DOESNT SOUND TOO MORBID BUT THE MOVING WALL IS IN MY TOWN THIS WEEK AND I JUST WANTED TO GO AND PAY MY RESPECTS THERE, WHEN THE IDEA TO FIND SOMEONE WHO DIED ON MY BIRTHDAY CAME TO MIND. I HAVE FOUND I PERSON WHO WAS KILLED WHEN I WAS 8 AND IM GOING TO SEE THE WALL TOMMORROW. JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW. MY FATHER, WHO I LOST LAST JULY WAS A WW2 VET AND FOUGHT IN THE PACIFIC. I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING TO TRY AND FIND OUT HIS UNIT SO I COULD SEE WHERE HE FOUGHT, I HAVE PICTURES AND SUCH BUT HE NEVER TALKED ABOUT IT. WELL IVE RAMBLED ON FOR LONG ENOUGH NOW TO SOMEONE I HAVE NEVER MET! BETTER GO ..TELL YOUR DAD "THANKS"...FOR HIS SERVICE TO THIS COUNTRY.
