Chewy, a Vietnam veteran who spends time in West Virginia and Washington state, props up a flag at the base of The Moving Wall on Sunday. He declined to give his last name. The wall carries the names of more than 58,000 men and women killed or listed as missing in action during Vietnam.
Sunday, 3:10 p.m.
A veteran wearing a “Brothers of the Wheel” motorcycle club jacket with several patches including one that read “Nomad” knelt in front of The Wall pushing a small American flag into the ground so it would not fall. He then fell silent and his eyes settled on the black panels.
