After my wife and I attended a VN Veteran's reunion in Georgia the end of APR08, we made a side trip to visit Ft. Bragg. I had been stationed there from JUL67-FEB68 while serving with the 82nd Abn. Div. I returned to VN with them when the 3rd Brigade was deployed there for the Tet Offensive.
As we drove around the post looking for my old barracks [torn down], EM club, etc., we eventually visited the 82nd Airborne Division Museum. I remember seeing this monument and asking myself the same obvious question about more names. I'm glad to hear that they were able to come up with a solution to continue to honor the memories of these fallen paratroopers. Because of time restrictions, my wife and I were unable to extend our visit into "All American Week" for the formal dedication.
If you are ever in the Fayetteville, NC, area, make it a point to go see the museum. It's well worth it. The Special Operations Museum is also nearby. Ft. Bragg is also the home of the Army Special Forces "Green Berets."
