The Memorial stone became reality
because we proposed at a reunion meeting to use Kilo 3/7 Vietnam member donations
to sponsor a stone there.
Lloyd Wells and Jay Sutton attended the service where the stone was installed
Our stone sits under a permanent open shelter and installed with other Vietnam
The location is The Highground in Neillsville Wisconsin.
I've visited most of the Vietnam memorials around the country and this place
is near the top in all aspects.
There were many other stones being dedicated that day so the ceremony was
It's an honor that I was asked to say a few words about Kilo 3/7 and also
to read all the names of Wisconsin KIAs who were lost in Iraq and Afghanistan,
most of whose families were there that day.
I highly advise any of our group to visit the Highground if they have a chance
to do so.
