The Three Servicemen Statue is a result of a controversy surrounding the design of the Vietnam War Memorial, "The wall". Some veterans and their political supporters thought it was "a black gash of shame" or a giant tombstone. They wanted a more heroic life-like depiction of a soldier.
I found Mike Hofich of the American Legion Post 951, Ogden, Pa at the Sacred Heart Cemetery in Chester, PA on Friday morning placing flags on the graves. Mike is a Vietnam Veteran who will be in full uniform at the Lawncroft Cemetery on Monday at 10am
10. Count the flags you see around and remember those who have given their lives for the glory of the red, white and blue.
Watch the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
