Card Found in Arlington National Cemetery . . .

Email received March 28, 2012

Attached is the photo taken of your son's card we left at the Vietnam Memorial and of Ken when he discovered the card by the tree in Arlington.

Thank you so much for sharing the story behind this card.

Respectfully,

My boyfriend, KM and myself came across your son's card at the Arlington National Cemetery. We were on our way to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, when Ken stopped to take my picture by a beautiful cherry tree. Ken noticed the card, and when he picked it up and read the story, we knew we had to take it on our tour of Washington DC. We had no idea where the card had gone at the time, but felt moved to leave it at the Vietnam Memorial. We took a picture and I will post it on here if there is a location, or email it to you. I have one son who is 21, and can only imagine the grief you have gone through. This is a wonderful memorial to your son, and a way to touch many lives. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of this tribute.
