We have 3 Vietnam vets buried here in Vinton. Joe Fowler, Ron Johnson and Wayne Wutzkie. As the SGT at Arms for the American Legion, I try to keep grave markers and flags on the graves 24/7. Sad to say it's hard to keep them there. For Joe's grave, someone swiped the flag and cast flag marker. I will attempt to get another. forever grateful...Larry
