Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall | I remember visiting the wall as a boy with my father who served as United States Marine in Vietnam in 1968 and 1969. It was an emotional, memorable experience to say the least. | Thank God for our #veterans
We created our sweet patriot banner with letters on back to send off to our heroes who defend and protect our country each day. We are celebrating Patriot Day this Friday at school and will honor our service men and women. This writing and craft banner is now available in my TPT store using the link in my bio. Idea for veterans day
