"just a wall with names on it"?
Fox girl, your 14 so i wont rip into you for that comment.
Do you know the history behind "the wall with names on it"?
Do you know what that "wall" means?
Do you know how long it took to get that "wall"?
Does it have to look cool to mean something?
ok im done now!!
I think we need a teen board!!!

Those names on that wall were all living people, some of whom I took military training with. But you're just a youngin, so you're excused! But I do think that the Rock should be out somewhere where more people could see it.

alright.. im sry about the whole just a wall comment but i think a memorial should be more intersting then a wall because if these people were willing to die for the country they should have more respect then just being on a wall, i mean you can put them on a wall 2 but i just dont think that's enough.

That monument should forever be preserved somewhere in
Washington, D.C. My hat goes off to the man who painted that rock. I'm a Veteran of the first Iraq war and that rock somes it up to how I feel about my Country. If this country had more patrotic men like this, our freedom will go on forever.
My only advice to you, young little lady.... Do some volunteer work at your local VA. hospital. I bet you will come out with a whole new outlook to why monuments like this means sooooo much to us Veterans.

For those of you who think Toby Keiths song
"Courtesy, of the Red, White and Blue...." Should be our new National Anthem. Give a big Hell Yaaaa

That is great,it just makes you stop and really think.When I was out at Fort Irwin,California there was a rock called Painted Rock and all the units use to paint there insignias on it.I don't think it was as big as that rock in Iowa.How far is that rock off of I-80?I would really like to see that.
