As I arrived back to my office this afternoon from a morning seminar, I look out my window and discover quite an amazing feat being undertaken just a few floors below in Fort Worth’s Burnet Park. Fort Worth Resident and Navy Veteran Ron White, a two time U.S. National Memory Champion, has memorized the rank, first name and last name of every member of the US Military who paid the ultimate sacrifice during Operation Enduring Freedom in the Afghanistan War. This morning at 7:30 a.m. Ron began writing, from memory, the names of the 2,176 fallen men and women on a 50 ft. memorial wall constructed in the park, which looks very similar to the Vietnam Memorial Wall. The picture below is from this morning, and from the looks of things he is about 2/3 of the way finished as of the posting time for this message. Hats off to you Mr. White for this unique and impressive way of remembering our fallen brothers and sisters!
