Dimon Kendrick-Holmes: Letters in the park by the river

Now I'm at the Military Service Walk. The first three markers flank an American flag and face the river. I read Bill Stelpflug's letter to his parents, written in Beirut in 1983. "It worries me more to know that y'all worry about me more than I worry about me," he writes. "I won't go out of my way to be a hero, or anything like that."
