The Heroes Wall is meaningful to all people who know someone who has served for our country. I think that specifically, it means the most to those who have lost someone in battle. This means a lot more because they are being recognized for their sacrifices for this country. I think that seeing these people on that wall makes them not forgotten. That wall will be there for a long time and so will the memories of all these veterans.
I think that this will also be very meaningful to the veterans who fought for this country and are still alive. They get the recognition that they deserve and the satisfaction of seeing their names and their story on the wall. I think they would be very happy to see that their sacrifices and dedication to this country didn’t go unnoticed. An example of someone who gave their life for our country is Captain Paul T. Hayes. He was a surgeon who served in the 326th medical battalion. He was killed in WWII on October 1, 1945.
He left behind his wife and his four children. I don’t know his grandchildren or anyone related to him but I bet that it would be pretty cool to go look at this wall and say that’s my grandfather. It would mean a lot to me to see someone like that who gave everything for our country being recognized on the wall. I think that it means a lot to all the families and friends of these people, and it is a very cool thing to have right in Biddeford.
