Re "Adding names to Vietnam Memorial stirs controversy" (Capitol & California, Aug. 26): I'm a Purple Heart Vietnam veteran of the United States Marine Corps, I don't see what the controversy is about adding names to the Vietnam Memorial. Any U.S. serviceman who died because of the war in Vietnam, be it outside some combat zone line, exposure to Agent Orange, post-traumatic stress disorder suicide or any other Vietnam-related death deserves some recognition on any Vietnam memorial.
