Wisconsin Vietnam War MemorialPosted on by GWDAccess
Jordan has had the opportunity to meet with several veterans over the last few months.
Irwin Shattuck served on the DE1041 USS Bradley and he did two tours in Vietnam.
Below in the picture with Jordan, Irwin holding a copy of the WI Vietnam War Memorial Fundraising Flyer. Thank you for your service.

Mike Duncan served 4 years (1 in the Marines and 3 in the Navy).
Mike presented Jordan with a small flag given to Mike when he went to Vietnam by his father as a good luck charm. Mike’s father told him to “REMEMBER WHAT YOUR FIGHTING FOR”.

This photo was taken after Mike gave Jordan the flag that was on a River Boat Patrol from Vietnam.
Mike Duncan explaining the story and significance of this folded flag to Jordan.
It has some stains so it is authentic. This was a powerful statement showing how much these veterans appreciate what Jordan is doing.

Jordan was honored by these gifts that have such a meaning to these Veterans.
Thank you to all of our Veterans for their service and sharing their stories with Jordan. Jordan is honored to meet and hear each of these amazing veterans and be entrusted with their stories and memories.
