Ralph Montez of Santa Fe went to see The Wall That Heals at Fort Marcy Ballpark on Wednesday to find the name of an old friend. He found it, etched among the thousands of names on the granite facade: Joseph F. Trujillo.

The visit brought up such a torrent of memories that Montez could not bring himself to return Thursday, when an opening ceremony was held for the traveling monument to the men and women who died during the Vietnam War.
