Several years ago, the traveling Vietnam Memorial was here in Franklin, NC for several days. At the end of the closing ceremony, they had 3 very large helicopters from the National Guard do the "missing man" formation. I'll never forget hearing the turning blades of the approaching helicopters and just as they appeared in front of us, one of them pulled away. There wasn't a dry eye around and I still get chills whenever I think of that moment.
