Over 500 WNYers died in the Vietnam War.

An old acquaintence of mine wrote this poem that is carved into the memorial:

They answered when called;
Asked for little and got less.
They made us poorer for their passing
But richer for their sacrifice.

In remembering the dead,
We embrace the living.
For we ought to remember
Better than we do.

Description of the memroial: two quarter-circular granite walls rise from the ground to approximately 12 feet in height. The walls are engraved with several quotes and other inscriptions, as well as the names of Western New York veterans killed during the Vietnam War. In the center of the semi-circular walls is a granite column with "Western New York Vietnam Veterans" and an image of a soldier and helicopter engraved on its top surface.

 

To log this cache you must visit the site and enter the password. The password is the middle intial of one of the names listed on the wall. The name is David Scritchfield, what is his middel initial?
