The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, The Three Soldiers, and The Vietnam Women's Memorial, april 2013. I took this picture in 2010 near the Vietnam Heritage Garden, San Jose. May the American and Vietnamese peoples always stand together!
uscitizenpod (gagliajn): Sons of San Jose Vietnam War Memorial
These photos were taken on Memorial Day 2013 at Sons of San Jose Vietnam War Memorial, Guadalupe Park, by Paula Harbor and were uploaded to Facebook. I asked Paula if I could share them. Her comments:
I hate war. I hate violence. I hate greed. I look at this name etched into granite and wonder ... what if?
Over the course of the couple hours I was at this memorial today people came and went. Parents, siblings, friends, vets, Vietnamese with bouquets of thanks. Everyone had a story. "Do you have someone on the wall?" The answer was always yes and the story told. A man came and put his hand on my shoulder. After several moments we spoke. He helped with find raising the memorial and talked about his buddies who are on the wall. I shared about Gus.
