Annual Chapter 116 Meeting at the Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Our Annual Meeting at the Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans Memorial went well.  It was good to see and hang out with our Brothers.  We walked around the Place of Names taking time to remember our Fallen Brothers, stopping to pause and to remember our friends, relatives, neighbors, classmates and Brothers.  One thing I noticed was that we all seemed to touch their names when we talked about “These Brave Few”.  I personally felt a healing effect.  I know in my heart that Their deaths will never be in vain and that They will never be forgotten.

* firebase116.org would like to thank “the nice lady with a Chihuahua” for taking the photograph of all of us at the Memorial.
