But an interesting thing happened. Nearly 23,000 people — or 1.7 percent of Alabama voters — wrote in somebody else’s name, which means they voted against Roy Moore.

The troops marched between a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, which bears the names of 58,318 fallen soldiers, and the new national memorial to the Global War on Terrorism, which bears the names of 6,915 more fallen and will be dedicated Monday morning.
