Jimmy Dean, Harbor Style Magazine

Dear Readers:

This month’s cover carries much symbolism for many of us. The replica of the Vietnam Wall at Laishley Park in Punta Gorda stands as a silent salute to all those who lost their lives in one of America’s most contentious conflicts. I was 18 and came very close to serving although my “number never came up.” That was when we were using a lottery based on your birthday, and if you won, you lost. Many of my friends whose number did come up left home full of conflicted emotions and returned home in a box. Too many. They gave all.
