WHO SPEAKS FOR THE DEAD?

I see a 'Wall'
Were images are reflected.
From the names.
Of those that went.
And met their fate.
They had no choice.
Or deferment.
From their fate.
At the Nation bidding
They went to their fate.
So, 
WHO SPEAKS FOR THE DEAD
At this late date?
No one as most just want,
To FORGIVE AND FORGET.
I'm sorry,
'I just can't
Do that just yet'...

The reason for this poem.

Was the normalizing relations with Vietnam.

Beside viewing the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, DC twice.

Also seeing and working on  traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall.

Than there's a Traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall that no longer travels.

Here in Altoona, PA.
