    Vietnam Wall Independence Day Parade Float

    My wife showed me this from a FB post.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-3Fe10Q6RQ




    This float represents a lot of hard work and detail. This makes the New Years Parade floats look amateur. It was made by the Solid Rock Baptist Church, Berlin, NJ. It's only a 34 second video, but I choked on it. I have a print of the painting it represents on the living room wall.

    As a Disabled Vietnam Vet seeing the Vietnam Wall always brings chills to me when I see it knowing how many died and I was one of the lucky ones to come back home not in a box! So many did not and they were so young I was fresh 18 myself when I went over. Thanks for the Post!
