Bring Vietnam Wall to Fairfield
To the editor:
Why not Fairfield? Why hasn’t the wall been brought to Fairfield?
There are seven names on it from Fairfield. In a 50-mile radius of Fairfield, there are 58 names on it. The state of Iowa gave up 869 of its finest.
It has appeared at Cardinal School, Ottumwa, Richland, Washington and Oskaloosa. It will be coming back to Oskaloosa for the second time on July 3 this year.
Who will do the work involved with the setup and take down? Many of the same that put the flags around the square.
To borrow the phrase from the 224th Engineer Battalion: Let’s “git ‘r’ done.”
