Beautifully, beautifully put.
And I guess the poster I originally responded to doesn’t know who Jan Scruggs was, and the effort it took for him to get a
Memorial Wall going.
Interestingly, I’ve recently gotten back in touch with my bunkmate from Basic , who I haven’t seen since about ‘68/
He asked me if I had the Basic Training “yearbook”, which surprised me, because I didn’t even know a yearbook existed.
So he emailed it all to me, page by page.
All those young and innocent faces (mine included) really brought back a whole new dimension of memories.
So now I have a COMPLETE list of the guys I was in Basic with,rather than the hundred or so names I could call up from memory.
If I ever make it back to D.C. and visit the Wall, I might take that list with me.
Or I might not.
I’m sure you know what I mean.

Here is the Wall’s website:

It has a feature called “Search the Wall”, so you can see if any of the names in your “yearbook” correspond and where on the Wall they are located.
