Appreciates the Wall

To the editor:

Thank you to the people involved in bringing the Vietnam Memorial Wall to Marshall. I know there is a lot of time and effort in planning this. Being able to see this along with the photos and read the clips in the weapons display area gives us just a glimpse at what our veterans have gone through.

And I mean only a glimpse; there is no way to truly know what was and is sacrificed by all of the men and women that serve.

Hopefully this helped some with the healing process and helped others to better understand what our veterans sacrificed for the freedoms we too often take for granted.

Say thank you to a veteran when you have the chance. They deserve it.
