    Dear Captain Mary Therese Klinker, ma'am.

    Remembering you and those you served with on this upcoming Memorial Day holiday, Monday, May 28, 2018 You are not and will not be forgotten.

    May America always stand, and may it stand for the freedom and values that you defended.

    With respect, Ma'am
  • Lady with a Lamp

    Posted on 4/19/18 - by Teddy Brown Harrison
    Mary was the inspiration of Remember "The Ladies" in Indiana, her home state. It was her memory and the enthusiasm of student nurses at St. Elizabeth that kept all of us going even after it was certain the brilliant likeness of the Brodin statue of an Army nurse would be lost ignominiously to a garage.
    But with Vietnam 50, She is back. The name of the effort behind Her has been shortened to Remember "The Lady."
    Remember Mary.

    "A lady with a lamp I see
    Pass through the glimmering gloom,
    and flit from room to room.
    And slow as in a dream of bliss,
    The sufferer turns to kiss
    Her shadow, as it falls
    Upon the darkening walls."
    H.W. Longfellow

    Thank you so much for your service and sacrifice in Vietnam, Captain Klinker! You're only the second lady that I've seen on The Wall. Rest assured, you will NEVER be forgotten!

    IT IS GOOD TO HONOR A REAL HERO. I am not related only in the fact that we are brothers and sisters in the overall life of helping eachother.
