  • ‘Wall of Faces’ site needs two local sergeants’ photos

    Born in 1962, I grew up not knowing of a time when there wasn’t a war in Vietnam. I didn’t really know what it meant, and I wasn’t fully aware of everything that went on during the late 1960s and early 1970s when people began to protest the U.S. involvement there.
    I have vague memories of watching Walter Cronkite on the CBS Evening News and hearing the day’s body counts from the war. I have even more vague memories of the slayings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy.
