 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Sgt. William "Bill" Reed Stocks' mother wrote a letter, left at the Wall, that became part of the book, in the Epilogue, in Dear America: Letters Home From Vietnam.  It was read in the subsequent movie by Ellen Burstyn.  The letter ends thusly:

"They tell me the letters I write to you and leave here at this memorial are waking others up to the fact that there is still much pain left, after all these years, from the Vietnam War.

But this I know, I would rather to have had you for 21 years, and all the pain that goes with losing you, then never to have had you at all.
