The Wall

I forgot to say that I visited The Wall on September 10, 2001, the day before the Twin Towers were attacked.
I did a rubbing of his name. It was a very emotional experience.

Remembering Jacob

I wore Jacob's MIA/POW bracelet for many years in high school. The only reason I took it off was because it broke.
I am very glad his remains were found.
RIP Jacob Mercer. Thank you for your service.

Not Forgotten.

Thank you for your service sir. When I was seventeen (1989) I was able to make a trip to Arlington from my home in Wyoming. I was brought to tears by the place especially the wall. I remember vividly seeing the names of a few of my friends who coincidentally shared the names of fallen soldiers. It was very moving to see my own reflection and realize how easily any young man could end up etched in those stones. I was saddened further to learn many men were never found. It angered me to think that we left men behind, that there were so many families who could not move on. So before I left I purchased a bracelet to remember all the men who had not come home again, or were left behind. It happened to be yours. I was so very happy to find out today that your family has been able to have the peace they deserve. For me you will always represent all of the men who fought so bravely for our country and paid such a heavy price. You will never be forgotten.
God bless,
Sean Orszulak
