Rockie Lynne has made a name for himself on the national music scene for the last decade. He has wowed audiences with his moving tribute to what makes America great. Having served in the military, Rockie has a special love of country. He has a standing gig as the featured entertainer at the annual Rolling Thunder concert at the National Wall every Memorial Day. Come enjoy his performance. It will be talked about for years to come.
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial, also referred to as The Wall in Washington DC, was the first step in welcoming home Vietnam Veterans. Ron Harris, a North Carolina Vietnam Veteran, wrote a play called ETCHINGS IN STONE about The Wall. Ron took the unique perspective of placing the audience inside of The Wall, with the ability to see the Wall’s visitors through the Wall and to hear what they have to say, but also the ability to hear the visitors unspoken thoughts.
