I don't know what this is if it isn't all that's right with our country.
Navy veteran, Ron White (no, not that Ron White), memorized over 2,200 names of fallen soldiers and hand wrote them on a memorial in Fort Worth, Texas. TWO THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED! As incredible as his memory is, his gesture is equally as impressive. Part of the reason White was doing this was to help raise awareness and money for the Wounded Warrior Project. If you're in the donating mood, it's a good a cause as any.
According to NBC 5:
Local Navy veteran Ron White spent the day writing the name of every service member, CIA agent and civilian contractor killed during the war in Afghanistan. That's more than 2,200 names and 7,000 words, when rank is included, spanning the 50-foot-long wall that is seven-feet tall.
"The sacrifice is huge, it's big and it's real," White said.
"I just wanted to acknowledge that each person who died was an individual person," White said. "You know, Gunnery Sgt. Benjamin Adam and LCPL. Leopold Damas, they were all moms and dads, brothers and sisters and they were each individual people."
"Don't forget," he said. "We say never forget, but never forget."
