My uncle served in Vietnam while I was in elementary school, I remember ... just as Suzanne Collins did. My uncle just organized a grand Memorial Day service at the Quantico Museum in honor of the men killed during his time ... his goal was to "bring their spirits back to life" even after all of the time that has passed.
