The Wall Song! Every Veteran Must Hear This!


You’ll never be Forgotten!


The Wall Song is a tribute born out of the kindred creative spirits of poet Judy Gorman King and songwriters Mitch Townley and Brad Dunse. Mitch heard Judy present her poem, The Spirit Of The Wall, at a Nashville benefit for homeless veterans in March, 2008. She gave him permission to use the poem as the inspirational foundation for the song. Mitch invited his good friend, singer/songwriter Brad Dunse to collaborate with him and the project was underway. The Wall Song was recorded in Nashville in July, 2008 by artist J.P. Williams and produced by Chip Martin.

We pray that The Wall Song will honor our surviving and fallen heroes of the Vietnam War as well as any who have served in the Armed Forces.

If you think someone deserves to hear this:


Thank you for your Service!

  1. The.wall is a.connection to our brothers who gave it all. I am only glad they did not come home to a disrespecting country at the time. It was very hard and hurtful. I thank the generation today who say Thank You, it makes it special for those on that wall and I thank you all for welcoming us home at last. A fellow Vietnam veteren.

    1. Thank you so much Mike Houston for your devoted Service! It makes me cry to see what is going on in this world today, and the disrespect for our Military and our American Flag. I am only glad I am older and won’t be around to see the eventual damage that will be coming to our great home of the Brave and the Free. It is really sad times!

  2. I read Mike’s comment above. He talked about not coming home to a disrespecting country. I don’t know if he is a Vietnam vet, but his remark makes me wonder. My brother was a helicopter pilot in that war, and very fortunately DID come home, unlike those many names on the Memorial Wall. Our family met him with open, thankful hearts and arms, and pride, but our country DID NOT. He’s told me about his experience arriving on American soil on a base on the west coast. War protestors met them with contempt and utter disrespect. The soldiers were spit upon and called every negative, nasty name in the dictionary. They were taken to a tent where they changed into civilian clothes in which to continue onto their respective homes throughout the country, and not to be identifiable as a military person, to avoid more harrassment. THAT was HIS homecoming and I think, almost more than the war itself, made him bitter and so, so disappointed. HE never started that war, nor actually wanted to fight in it. But when he was asked to go and perform as he was instructed, he did it with pride and willingness to leave his family, pregnant wife (missed the birth of his first child), and ALL in defense of a country full of people who often blamed him and his army brothers for the whole war. Now THAT was his WONDERFUL reception. I am upset with the actions of those protestors, and those who hid behind the protestors, too cowardly to “man up” to their convictions they would openly express to anyone around them who would listen to their misguided and misdirected opinions. My brother didn’t feel ANY gratitude for the hell he had gone through.(Thank God our current deployed military returnees are not given that kind of reception when arriving home. They are treated with much respect and heroism, as they should be.)
