The day before Memorial Day, the New York chapter held a solemn procession with bagpipes through Battery Park, stopping at some of the war memorials there. On Memorial Day itself, many of us joined those already on the Mall with Roger Ehrlich’s powerful Swords Into Plowshares Memorial Bell Tower. We delivered 150
letters to The Wall, and then walked around the reflecting pool with a banner commemorating the more than 3 million Southeast Asians who died from America’s War in Viet Nam, people usually not mentioned in official commemorations on that day.
