Thank you for your service to our country. Except for the luck of the draw, it could have been my name instead of yours on the Wall. May you be comforted by the fact that, as long as the United States exists, your name and those of your comrades will be enshrined there on the Mall between the monuments to Washington and Lincoln.
A Note from The Virtual WallThe newspaper article is incorrect in one particular - two men were killed by the explosion: LCpl Weest and LCpl Leonard W. Roberson of Redmond, Washington.
