Thank You For Your Service

I visited the Wall in the mid 80s, not to honor any family member lost, but simply to pay tribute to those who served or gave the ultimate sacrifice. As I approached the Wall for the 1st time, I was overwhelmed by the tens of thousands of names there. I sadly realized it was going to be impossible to read them all, to somehow honor all of them individually given my time constraints on this trip. The names seem to fly by as I sadly searched for some way to pay homage. How could I walk away without saying thank you to each and every one? The more I searched for a way, the more tears filled my eyes at this overwhelming moment. Finally, my eyes fixated on one name, THIS NAME-DONALD BEN ADAMS, that stood out for me among the others. That moment is still with me today...that moment when I came across this name. And though I was of a much younger generation that got to enjoy the freedoms in America at that time AND I am not related, I say 'thank you' for your service and your name there at that moment, which allowed me, in a small way, to make a connection with someone who served and sacrificed. It's been 30+ years and yet you are not forgotten. God bless.

American HERO, We will never forget you.........Donald I was looking thru the names and info on Americans that died in that crazy prove nothing war when I came to your name, What caught my eye first was your birthday, 31 of July and then the date of your death, 18 of July, we have the same birthday and sadly you died on day my son Richard was born, different year but same day. His name sake my brother Richard was like you killed in Viet Nam.
Having lost my brother Sp4 Richard Friend 101 airborn in Viet Nam in 3-24- 1968 I know the pain your family and friends feels. If it's of any peace to them remember this.
Though you are gone you will never be forgotten! You and men
like you, are the reason we are free today! I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the sacrifices that you made! I hold you and those like you in the highest regard and you deserve nothing less! American's love you all, you were and always will be HEROES to me! I promise never to take for granted the freedoms I have, which you paid the ultimate price for!
Let no man be forgotten…I WILL REMEMBER YOU. God's Peace to you and your family. "REST IN PEACE HERO, REST IN PEACE".
