Remembered by a friend.
It is 30 yrs since American left Vietnam in a flurry of activity.Keith was KIA just 80 days before the end of his tour.married to my friend Grace, Keith's death impacted a view of sacrifice by one of us.Yesterday, Keith, your name was covered with a paper and it now is a part of my remembrance of your sacrifice in tangible form.you are not forgotten.your name is emblazoned on the wall for as long as it stands in the freedom of our country.
