C-Ration Hot Chocolate

I remember you Mark. I remember the picture you showed us of your wife. And I remember how she was always writing to you and sending cookies. They were great with the C-ration hot chocolate. You were the driver on the first track I was assigned to in Aug 1970. Some years ago I was at the VA hospital and, while waiting for my appointment, they called your name. I looked around the waiting room but knew you weren’t there. Three times they called your name and then the staff shook their heads—no one came forward. It was all I could do to not go over to them and say, “Mark won’t be able to keep this appointment.” Sleep well, brother. We’ll see each other soon. . .

Matthew Schumaker, Jim's son.

The unfortunate reality is you are my only connection to the wall. My dad and you were best friends growing up and your family lived right down the street from where I grew up. Back in grade school we went on a trip to DC and I looked up and found your name on the wall. Tomorrow I plan on finding it again taking my son to the moving wall here in Morristown TN. I wish I could've met Mark, my dad always had good stories about your times together.
