Me at the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in 1987 when I was 15. It was controversial not long before that. It was a topic of debate at school that teacher’s would bring up. I don’t remember *what* was controversial about it though anymore, except maybe that it was too artsy, too dark, too stark, too dramatic or something like that.
People had POW/MIA flags all over town growing up. Soldiers that were left behind, went missing (I’m sure a few stayed voluntarily but not all), their bodies (if dead) never brought home again.
I think I was standing by the name of a family member there. I should look it up.
