VIET NAM VETERANS MEMORIAL - THE TRAVELING WALL
I spent a full day and evening volunteering to help feed the many volunteers - we had pizza, fruit, cold drinks, breakfast sweets in the morning, sandwiches and such to sustain the soldiers and other volunteers constantly in attendance. Our classmate Frank West, himself a Vet, stopped by to say hello, which was a nice KHS treat! I had the pleasure of seeing several others whom I know and met many wonderful folks giving of their time and energy to assist the public as they paid their respects, mourned or simply visited out of a sense of history and honor. My friend Sandie Grassino was in charge of providing all the food for the volunteers and I'm so glad she asked me to help - I doubt anyone went hungry!
