Harold Hall, D Company 1/22 Infantry 1969-70 writes:

This is a picture that Gary Hurl put together after our 1999 reunion. It is an example of Gary’s awesome talent
with the reflection of each of us present in the wall and Lt. Baxter separate and off to the left by the 4th Infantry Division insignia.
We were members of Third Platoon, Delta Company and all served with Lt. Baxter.
