The Heavens Sunset sim is noted for it's virtual replica of the Vietnam Wall. But recently Suta Northman whom runs the area had something else to show me. It was a number of photographs on display, under a roof supported by pillars. At the opening were two plaques. One had the Gettysburg Address. The other had the following:Angel Flights.
In the end .... They gave all.
Black Hills National Cemetary
Spearfish, South Dakota
This is one of many sacred resting places of Angel Flights throughout the world and for our brothers and sisters over the years.
The pictures were of numerous photographs of the cemetery and the nearby Back Hills. Suta would explain some of his family were intered there. Among them was Major Kenneth C Owens, whom had enlisted as a private, got a commission, and worked his way up to Major. He served in Korea and Vietnam. He would also show photos of the nameplaques of two other relatives, Specialist Leroy Boucher and Sergeant Dean Boucher. Both were also veterans of Korea and Vietnam.
The photos are not far from the Native American Veterans Memorial, which itself is close by the Vietnam Wall.
