A Potter Name Incribed
I did not know; there are 20 men surnamed Potter whose names are inscribed upon the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC. I was there last week, spending spring break with son, Benjamin, and grandsons, Austin (13) and Grady (18). Along with hundreds of others, we filed slowly and silently past the black marble memorial to the fallen heroes of the Vietnam War. I did a tracing of the only Potter I spotted but a Google search brought me the names of the 19 others. There were tributes left even now and even still. A visit to this memorial should be on every American's bucket list.
