I just got back from New Mexico today and thought I would post some pics from the Vietnam Veterans National Memorial outside of Angel Fire. It's a very emotional place even for this 30 year old kid. Apologies to those on dial up. This will be a big post. This is the plaque outside that says, "On April 24, 1994, Dr. Victor Westphall gathered a handfull of soil from this spot and on May 2, 1994, scattered it at the ambush site in Vietnam where Lt. Victor David Westphall, III lost his life on May 22, 1968. Dr. Westphall returned with earth from the ambush scene and mixed it here with New Mexico soil on May 5, 1994."
