We Will Remember

I had the honor to say your name during the 40th anniversary commemoration of the Wall. May you rest in peace.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."

Vietnam Memories

I was the teenage daughter of a Marine serving in Vietnam when I received a POW bracelet with Jake Mercer's name on it. I wore it for years and, after moving to Jacksonville, learned that Mercer was from there when I read a Fathers' Day tribute article in the Florida Times Union. I still think of him and I named my son Jake in his memory.
