Taking A Sunday Drive #9
Quite possibly from our very first date.....
.....but certainly after knowing him for awhile and learning about some of his experiences in Vietnam, one of the daydreams I was most desirous of coming true was that one day he would get to see The Memorial Wall in D.C.
It would be 27 years, but we finally got there.
I had been in D.C. a couple of times prior to the construction of Maya Lin's design, but being there with Bud was that dream come true.
Near The Wall is the bronze statue, The Three Servicemen. The soldiers appear to be solemnly looking across at the names on The Wall.
Also a short distance from The Wall is the Vietnam Women's Memorial.
The Washington Monument seen across the reflecting pool from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
