Off The Wall

We were high school sweethearts, young and naive...we married young and in the short year and a half marriage we spent about 3 mos. together before he was sent to Nam. The next thing I know his name is jumping “OFF THE WALL”. The first time I saw his name on THE WALL the impact knocked me off of my feet. The pain and reality was unlike anything I could ever describe.
It was beyond surrealistic and his death still impacts me to this day.
