It's heartening, isn't it, the way veterans and people grateful to them have responded to the dismaying theft of a park plaque that honored the 15 Petaluma servicemen killed in Vietnam.
Kimchi Moyer, who was 7 when her family fled South Vietnam, is among those rallying to correct the outrage.
"Perhaps there could be something even better, and a little bigger," said Moyer, who chairs the Sonoma Vietnamese Association.
She has volunteered the association's assistance in the process to determine what should replace the bronze plaque stolen from downtown Petaluma's Walnut Park, and to help pay for it.
The response by the organization of local Vietnamese Americans is gratifying to Petaluma's Joe Noriel, and not surprising.
