I wanted to get out of the house today. I went to the USS Alabama memorial park. There is a Vietnam memorial there .. particularly for the Alabama veterans who died in Vietnam. It has two wall lists. One lists every Wall casualty from locally and another larger one for all the military lives lost in Vietnam from the state of Alabama. There is a Huey up on a raised stand and a statue. The statue looks like a Vet come to remember the dead. He has on combat boots and a cap that says Vietnam Veteran. What is really strange is... people are leaving coins and other things. A small cross in memory of someone. A POW bracelet. A flag and a flower....and.... at the base... between the statute's two boots are a pair of toddlers shoes..that are not matching.
