Virtual Vietnam Wall offers place to post remembrances
Monday, May 29, 2006
The site is run by a park service volunteer who works at the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.
Jim Schueckler wanted to give friends and family of Vietnam Vets the opportunity to honor their loved ones in writing. So, he created the Virtual Wall.
Schueckler says people can post poems, pictures and stories on the site. And he says relatives and friends of vets have connected through the site.
Schueckler: That's probably the most emotional, when people have connected. Like the daughter of a man who died in Vietnam being able to be in touch by e-mail of a buddy who was with her father on the day that he died.
