“Freedom’s Wall” by Bruce Robertson

Designing and constructing a war memorial is a true form of art. When done well, memorials bring people together, inspire reverence and awe and—when crafted most successfully—stir their observers to act. This was the case for Bruce Robertson, as he stood in the shadow of Washington D.C.’s expansive tribute to the Vietnam War.
“My God,” thought Robertson, stunned when he and his wife, Karen, visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. “How many names are on this wall?” He would later learn the answer: the names of nearly 60,000 men and women are etched on the monument’s surface, paying tribute to the service members who fought and died during the Vietnam War, along with those who were unaccounted for. 
Robertson felt a strong calling from God to honor these men and women. “Freedom’s Wall” is the result of that calling—a compilation of poems born out of Roberton’s love for all veterans. He dedicates the work to everyone who has served in the U.S. Military.
