Our Patriot’s Journey

From the FDR Memorial to George Washington’s home at Mt. Vernon . . .

Brian and Mary,
 
On Sunday morning, November 29th, 2009, at about 8:30 am, my wife, Brenda, and I were walking through the FDR Memorial in Washington, DC.  We are from Utah. I found the photograph of your son on one of the stone blocks in front of a panel that read, "I have seen war......I hate war".  I completely agree with that statement.  We were so moved by what you have done for your son.
 
I served in Vietnam and my oldest son was a tanker during Desert Shield in Kuwait.  You have our most sincere sympathies for your loss.  Also, you have our thanks for Robert's service and sacrifice.
 
We took your photograph to Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington.  He served this country and helped make it what it is today.  He was also the leader of the "citizen Army" which fought and won our independence from a much superior military.  I believe this was a appropriate location to place your son's photo.
 
I am attaching photos.
 
Good luck with this very moving and respectful project. Thank you again for your sacrifice and the service and sacrifice of Robert.
