Somewhere in NYC - I can't remember where, (Marble Collegiate Presbyterian Church, 5th Ave and 29th St), these ribbons line the fence of this Church. A ribbon for every dead, Sailor, Soldier, Airman or Marine - of the current wars this Country fights. It is a moment of solace, causing a snapping into pause form our daily grind. The visual is dramatic, and sad.
Of the names in the frame, is PFC. Albert M. Nelson - and his story is unique - I ask that you follow this link and read his story. And remember Nelson, and his family of which I wish GodSpeed.
