Yes, I am personally connected to this book. Lisa Lark took the time to sit down and spend several hours with my husband and me to talk about cousin Doug Kempf, a medic who lost his life in September 1969.....lost his life trying to safe another's. Lisa wanted to get it right....to honor those who served......and to put a face on the thousands who didn't return.
This book will, I pray, open up the lines of communication between veterans and their families. When the Vietnam soldiers returned home, they were treated like lepers --- shunned and ignored. They ALL deserve our thanks and our respect. Thank you, Lisa. Thank you so much.
I got this book to see how good her work was and did it or did it not honor our fight.
It is emotional for me, but it verified her good faith.
Good job, Ms. Lark
and, at times, outrage for the brave men and women who served, those who never returned, and for
America, during the longest war in U.S. history.
The creation of The Wall on November 13, 1982, was the integral first step out of many towards
the healing of America. Lisa Lark has taken another important step with this book.
"All They Left Behind" drives home the hard, cold reality that behind each of those 58,000 names
on The Wall was a real person who lived and loved and ultimately made the supreme sacrifice for
their country. In this book, we are given a personal glimpse into the lives and legacies behind
just a few of those names on The Wall by the families, friends, and the people who knew and loved
them. Thank you, Lisa.
In loving memory of my husband:
