“My mother placed a blue star banner in the window of her home when I first deployed to Vietnam in January of 1968. I was badly wounded about 6 weeks into my tour. I first saw the banner when I went home on pass from the hospital where I spent 6 months partially recovering from the injury I sustained. The banner remained in Mom’s window through my second tour in Vietnam in 1970-71 and until the day she died. I recovered the banner, now tattered and ripped from sun damage, from her house after her death. She displayed the banner in honor of my service. I now display the banner in her memory.”
