Memorial Day part 2

Walter Thackerson Jr is a name engrained upon my Remember Forever, as a soldier from Munford, Alabama, a fatality of the Viet Nam War. When the Traveling Wall came to Houston several years ago, the person who looked up his name for me said it was one of the first names on the wall. As I approached the wall, I was overcome with immense sadness. You could feel the spirit of those names. It was pretty powerful.
