2- July 05, 2012 Your Hometown Newspaper News Outlook Heaven Is A Lot Like Kentucky By Charles Mattox I saw her from a distance As she walked up to the wall In her hand she held some flowers As her tears began to fall She took out pen and pa- per As to trace her memories She looked up to Heaven And the words she said were these She said "Lord my boy was special And he meant so much to me" And oh I'd love to see him Just one more time You see All I have are the memo- ries And the moments to re- call So Lord could You tell him He's more than a name on a wall Excerpted from the song, "More than a Name on a Wall', writ- ten by Jimmy Fortune of The Statler Brothers. It's been almost 30 years since I stood at the Vietnam War Memorial: The Wall, as it is known to many. I had made a trip to our nation's capital early in 1983 with some Army buddies-h0  :were sta- tioned with me at Aber- deen Proving Grounds, Maryland. We were studying the mechanics of tank tur- rets, the round part of the tank that spins around and has all the weaponry. They were my best bud- dies at the time and coinci- dentally the best buddies in the world at the time for Uncle Sam-and all his children who wore green, were a handful of Afghan freedom fighters called the Muhijadeen. Now we call some of those folks Taliban and enemy. They were taking it to Ivan and that "evil em- pire" known as Russia back in the good old days, though. I was 19-years-old and other than my Army Ba- sic Training at Fort Jack- son, South Carolina I had never really traveled out- side of northeastern Ken- tucky. We were on the brink of war with Russia-and here I was at Washington D.C. After a quick tour of the Smithsonian Institute I saw the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown-Soldier. I can still remember a man in the crowd explain- ing to his very young son that the soldiers who guarded that tomb had, "been given a very noble task." I remember thinking how i wished my father could have been there with me to see that; to see those men making those pristine and almost me- chanical movements in synch with one another around the tomb. My fa- ther had dropped out of school after the eighth grade and volunteered to join the Army Air-Corp at the climax of World War Two. He was barely 15 years- old at the time when he joined. I still find that hard to believe, and even more incredible that he never mentioned his age to me on those extremely rare occasions when he spoke frankly 'to me of his ser- vice to the country. These discussions were univer- sally held in the woods near our home when I was a young teenager- about 15-years-old. 'q'ry to stand in the middle of the formation and don't ever volunteer for anything, boy," were about the only words of advice I can remember him giving me just before I joined the service: I found it to be solid ad- vice. I was even thinking about that as I left the OPINIONS ON E tomb of the unknown- soldier and went to see a new attraction in D.C, which was being called The Wall. It was a very controversial (at the time) memorial to those who perished in Vietnam. As more of an off-handed lark, just to se e what some of the fuss was all about, one buddy and I decided to visit The Wall. I still weep when I think about that visit-and the things we saw there. To put it simply we were overwhelmed. I love photography, al- ways had, but growing up our family was literally too poor to afford pho- tographs on any regular basis-too much money for the camera-the film- the flashcubes-getting the film developed, well, I never owned a camera until the weekend I went to Washington D.C. That camera was a compact Kodak Disc. I still have it, and still have the pictures I took on that hip. I did not take any pic- tures of The Wall, that's how powerful the things we saw were; too power- ful to even dare take a photo of. In retrospect, I wish I had taken photographs. I think they would have inspired me to write a more comprehensive column honoring our na- tion's independence. Though I do not have photographs, I do have images and information that I can visualize and share. There are 58,267 names now listed on that LEGAL NOTICE WALL Due to the proposed construction of the Frenchburg-West Liberty Rd (US 460) project officially designated as FD52 083 6169401R ; STPS 406-2, Menifee County, Item No. 10-117.01, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Transportation Cabinet, Department of Highways deems it necessary to remove and relocate the unknown cemetery which is located along US 460 approximately 2.4 miles southeast of Frenchbur $.

SAUER IMPLEMENT 3742 MASVILLE RD., RT. 11 NORTH FLEMINGSBURG,  41041 (606) 849-4-853 polished black granite. wall, including those add- ed in 2010. The first known casualty was Richard B. Fitzgibbon, of North Wey- mouth, Mass. Listed by the U.S. Department of Defense as having been killed on June 8, 1956. His name is listed on the Wall with that of his son, Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Richard B. Fitzgibbon Ill, who was killed on Sept. 7, 1965. There are three sets of fathers and sons on the Wall.  " 31 sets of broth- ers are on the Wall. 997 soldiers were killed on their first day in Vietnam. 1,448 soldiers were killed on their last day in Vietnam. But these are simple statistics that are as cold as the stone they are en- graved upon, I offer an- other perspective. Around 1990 Kent Bischoff, a Vietnam War Veteran, went to Wash- ington D.C., with his wife, to sight-see and visit The Wall. Kent had intended to maybe get some etch- ings of some folks he knew that were on The Wall some of whom had served with him at Fire Base Tomahawk, but there was an exception- ally large crowd that day and they arrived late in the day. The next day they had planned to visit The Smithsonian Institute but that next morning Kent told his wife he had been to the Smithsonian Institute before and he asked is she would mind if she went by herself so he could return, instead to The Wall. His wife Hol- ly said she understood- knowing some things a man must deal with by himself, in his own way. So Kent took a taxi from their hotel to The Wall, picked up several ships of carbon paper to make the etchings and began his task-placing the paper on the names of those he knew and then pressing down with a pencil across the name. He went unnoticed by the crowd as he made his first etching, and then an- other, and another. Soon a small crowd took notice of the man who seemed locked into a mission and was walking along the wall making one etching after another. Finally a lone woman broke from the ranks those who had gathered, unbeknownst to Kent. She gently placed her hand on his shoulder, "Excuse me sir," she said. "I've been watching you and well, there's just no way you could have known all those men." Kent looked down al the 16 strips of paper in his hand, then back to the one blank strip left of the last he intended to gather. "Yes ma'am," Kent said. "I reckon I surely do. ] knew everyone of these men personally. They were among my bes! friends." You see Kent and those 17 names he held in his hands were men wh came from Bardstown, Kentucky. Kent's story, and those of the 17 men, can be found in the book q'he Sons of Bardstown" by Jim Wilson. I'm going to try to honoI those sons of Bardstown, and the sons of Mt. Olive Flemingsburg, Carlisle, Owingsville and French- burg, on the Fourth oJ July. Lord knows our small Kentucky commu- nities have paid dearly for our freedom. Our freedom doesn't come cheap. It never has and it never will. Enjoy your freedom while you can, make your freedom worth their sacrifice, dem reader. Amish Shop Now Opened E. and E. Metal Roofing & Siding 661 Mt.
