Faithful Servant of Jesus Christ

I remember Dick leading Bible Studies at he University of Missouri. He went to our church and was telling me when he joined the Navy (he was going to be drafted), he would not be coming back. Two weeks after getting to Vietnam, he was killed. A faithful servant of Jesus Christ.

54W-Line 36

54W-Line 36

This simple combination of numbers and letters has obsessed me for the last few years. It means little, except to the friends and family of the 5 names in that line, on that panel. My interest is in the middle name, and I can claim him as neither friend or family. In fact, to my knowledge, I met the man only once and have only vague memories of him in his uniform. He was, however, friends with my Aunt, Uncle and Mother, and this is mostly how I know or even... care about the panel 54W, line 36 on the Vietnam Memorial. On many days, but especially this weekend, I will be thinking of Richard Augustine Dexter and the sacrifice he made for our country, and the impact it had on those left behind. Your views on war and our involvement in them aside, I hope everyone takes at least a few minutes out of your long weekend to think of the men and women such as this, who won't be back, but deserve to not be forgotten. For my part, to the countless families who have lost loved ones serving in our armed forces and to the Dexter family in particular.... Thank You.
