Not only on Memorial Day, July 4th, Veterans Day or an other holiday, but all 365 days of the year, please take a moment to remember and honor all of our veterans. These veterans are heros on every single day of the year.

Touch the Wall is a unique look at the lives of our heroes on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Throughout my years volunteering at the Vietnam Memorial and The Moving Wall, I have been sharing information focusing on all facets of these veterans, and deciphering fact from fiction. I am introducing myself as not only an educated resource, but a well-versed volunteer assistant helping to host your Moving Wall event.

I provide information about our Prisoners of War (POW), Missing in Action (MIA), ordering or returning the POW/MIA bracelets, linking to Sons and Daughters In Touch and the Dog Handler Association, and interesting facts about the veterans on the memorial.

The discrepancies on the memorial have never been explained or addressed. Touch the Wall will clarify and resolve these inaccuracies, as well as giving a venue to report any previously unnoticed errors.

The development of Touch the Wall will be ongoing since it has taken me over twelve years to research and gather all the information, so please check back frequently for updates. Alternatively, you can join the mailing list to be sent occasional news items.

I care because many in my generation can no longer "touch the wall" for themselves.



I have decided to return my home page focusing on my original concept. However, Please always check out my news page which updates all "new" news, events or issues.
