I was there but made it back - President Bush is fuckin' whack.  Bobby

God Bless U  Bob   We must be the ones to create the peace within our hearts and minds to have peace in the world. Here's to ones that gave their lives for what they believed.  Let's be the change Let's be the love  Let's be the peace      Blessings    Kerri A.

Dear Bob,  God bless you and all veterans who sacrifice their lives for USA.  I am a muslim and US citizen support peace in world.   God Bless you,     a Muslim citizen

Thanks you for this memorial.  Daryl B.  Nebraska

Hi Bob - Thanks for your heartfelt memorial. It hits me there.  I called the Beach Reporter re: your fantastic work.   Don S.

Unjustified war, unwanted occupations, and needless loss has been the unfortunate mantra by which this country has built upon and continues to this day (i.e. the need for your magnificent, but sad wall).   Even more sad, is the recognized need for change...and the pitiful state of acting to do so.  When names that are recognizable to each one of us dawn on your wall,...then we'll see action.  Until the, praises to your "anonymous heroes." S.R.B.  Redondo Beach

Thank you!  I have served in Iraq 2 X's (with the Stage Department which I eventually resigned from out of disgust for out treatment of Iraqis and our own soldiers there) and now live 1/2 the year there working with the people of Iraq to show them the U.S. is not an enemy.  Many of my friends are listed below.  Thank you for honoring them.  Karin 

Right on Bob A.

This is amazing and impressive and so sad--thank you for this "reality."  J.

Thank you!     Steve-- El Segundo

How does the sentence in back end? I presume these are the brave people who were claimed by the Iraq debacle?  Thank you--nice reminder--since we are not allowed to see actual coffins on TV!   I will knock on your door one day--thanks again!    Debbie C.

Good work, Bob.  I look at the names in the paper every day, and we need reminders like this too.  But how does the sentence at the top end?  ---Bart

Thank you for taking the time and love and energy to let the world have a chance to know the meaning of life.    May God bless the souls of these Brave Men and Women.  They are now Angels in Heaven watching over us.  Let's all pray that we overcome this time of troubles, war and human errors and return to being a Great Nation under God, that we trust!   HW

Good luck and God Bless.  I hope people appreciate this display and respect it.  Peace is patriotic, not war.

Good work!  It is October 8, 2008 and I believe George Bush is finally realizing the horrors he created.  If you Google...Defense Planning Guidance - 1992, then P.N.A.C.  It's all there!  I salute your wonderful efforts  Richard R.

Dear Mr. Perkins,   What is the list of?  Sorry if someone tore a section just curious.   It seems you have put a bunch of effort in.  Guessing it has to do with the war.  If so Bravo!

(editor's note--the notebook was a steno pad and people started from the front and the back so I starting typing from one of the front pages and some of these above comments were posted when the piece was only partly done and they were guessing at the meaning of the list of names)

Thank you for recognizing we will never forget freedom for all.  Francisca, Brussels (Belgium)

They died for America for their buddies next to them, and for you, so you could enjoy this nice view in freedom so be grateful and show some respect.  They were not sent to die.  They (we) went willingly to serve our country and make a better life for the Iraqi people.  Freedom is not free.  Semper Fidelis  Adam C.  Iraq - Feb 04 - Dec 04.
