Vietnam Veteran Doug Foster and the Healing Wall

Doug Foster had heard about the Texas South Plains Honor Flight from some veterans in Snyder who had gone on the flight. Doug, a Vietnam veteran didn’t think he was eligible because he felt like it was mostly for WWII and Korean vets. He finally applied in 2014 and received the call in September 2016 that they “had a spot for him on the flight.” It would still be a difficult decision for Doug as he had never been to Washington, D.C. and wasn’t sure how he would react to the Vietnam Wall. For him, it would more difficult than most as he probably lost more buddies than anyone in the country whose names are etched on the long black wall.
