I’ve been asked to speak that day because I was listed as “Missing In Action ” in 1966. I made it home and there was closure for my family. Almost 90,000 of our servicemen and women never came home. There’s been no closure for their families and the pain still remains. Please join us for this short ceremony as we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Lest we forget!
