Sgt. Chris' Visit to the Vietnam War Memorial

(The MUSIC only plays in Internet Explorer)

Former Sgt. Chris Gaynor's partner, Paul Chen took a LOT of great pictures during their recent road trip. They visited both the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial in D.C. and the family of Thomas B. Corbin. Thomas was one of our heroes who gave all at the Battle for FSB BURT. He got to meet Thomas' family and extended family, and help them honor his Memory.He also posted momentos,bios and photos of some of our KIA's at the wall.

And of course, a Very Grateful THANK YOU to brother Christopher Gaynor and Paul for these great shots. And just in time for MEMORIAL DAY. As usual, click on the Thumbnail to see the FULL sized pic, whether or not you want to download it. I did not have the heart to "Trim the full sized ones down" So, they are large files.
