        Thank you to the many people who worked so hard to bring the Wall That Heals to Blythewood, especially Councilman, Eddie Baughman and Hazel Kelly. 

And a huge Thank You to the many volunteers who will be at Doko Meadows around the clock for the 5 days it will be in Blythewood.  The calls to Town Hall in support were amazing and often very emotional. Many of the volunteers told me they were the lucky ones who need to be there in support of the fallen heroes whose names are on the Wall. Bring a tissue...

Wait until you see the incredible video by Ray Smith and his son, Andrew, as they interview Vets speaking of their experiences, from their hearts.   There will be more footage added as the weekend events progress.  

And enjoy the beautifully restored Viet Nam vehicles displayed by Bob Redfern, who will speak at the Opening Celebration tonight at Doko Manor.  So many people to thank!  MK
