Jim Rosin and I spent numerous hours guarding the traveling Wall that came to Sandusky we'd like to comment on the soldiers names as they appear. We are both combat veterans and feel the Wall is reserved for those who actually died in Vietnam or from wounds shortly thereafter. Our hearts go out to any veteran or families of veterans but "The Wall" is reserved for those who died of combat-related injuries. I think there are many more veterans who share our views.

I think my status as a disabled Vietnam Veteran who was exposed to not only to Agent Orange but also the much stronger Agent White and Purple allows me to make these comments. I'd sure be interested in comments from other veterans.
