Welcome to our after the -- -- up for Friday TG IF everyone we're joined by Ron -- who -- -- Veteran and he has done this amazing wall behind this year that stretches and stretches and stretches.
You have miraculously -- more than 2200 names of all the fallen in Afghanistan.
And you have written and since midnight on these walls last night.
Amazing -- It -- -- ten months to memorize it you know it's 7000 words.
So when I started memorize it may the first I didn't even tell anybody I was joining until November.
Because I wasn't sure if I could do it sure.
As -- -- takes a walk down the wall and let's go ahead and -- down here.
Do I we noticed it before every name is -- number so that has something to do it did come on over here but start here.
You actually start with number two.
Well number one playing just his recognition her I've -- -- just every other war that we've been involved in that better names -- on -- very.
But the numbers are really just for me it's a it's a way that I assure ensure that I don't skip anybody so you see the number two and what do what do you think of what you're master sergeant Evander Andrews I -- I have had each one of these names on a piece of furniture.
Around the city of Fort Worth.
Master sergeant Evander Andrews is on the desk and in the room that I grew up -- as a kid.
Specialist John Edmonds is on the TV in the room that I grew up on as a kid.
Private first class Christopher Stone -- on the -- So I just go around that room in my head and I see those names on all the furniture that I moved in the next room that I did the same thing in there -- see this that the the name and not the picture because you don't know what they look like.
Correct so ideal for the -- -- IC jewelry.
-- -- name's Steve I see is stoked for Brian and I see a brain.
So if the guys names of Brian and he's on my door I'd imagine.
A brain on my door.
Also there right next to their names does not mean it's already credible enough that you memorized all the names but also every.
You know what I was still NFL and they got to Steve first and last name because that would be easier that we let 2200.
-- less but -- I thought.
Well they earn those rights you know 1000 military -- my right.
So I put the ranks up there at some measure of respect.
That they earn those rights by EA would have been easier not to do it.
They all in the order in which they were killed correct master sergeant Evander Andrews was the first.
And for the most recent -- -- it.
This you've had to -- fifteen games you said in just the last couple we correct.
It quickly and the wall is a 52 people and it -- you personally over 50000 dollars -- are you doing this.
You know I just -- You know it's a hard question to answer I guess I just want the families to know that that they're not forgotten.
You know I mean I think that they think that it.
They're they're -- -- sacrifices.
Forgotten by everybody and I just want to say hey.
You're not forgotten it and know it and always say you're not for -- about wanted to acknowledged it each one individually.
So I think -- we've always said you're not forgotten -- I've always said that but this way by doing it this way I'm saying and sergeant James Ford I should not forgotten Sargent -- -- you're not individually and that's why do it just to keep their memory alive and -- are angry and people who have lost some.
Loved ones and Afghanistan -- seen you do this.
Their reaction has been -- you know the that's the first -- -- the first the first.
Family member I was I was right names that are say Austin stags that I kept rotten and errors out of -- again I'd turn around some -- -- -- -- -- -- She said he was my grandson.
Hello stay here -- you write his name.
That's -- -- about three hours she's -- that's okay she was a grandmother she got a lawn -- and she sat behind me for three hours waiting for media right Austin's name.
And that since then -- last week I was invited to hit the house -- grew up in -- Win his bedroom and I saw his stuff and it is very emotional.
Very emotional day.

While -- force for the first time we did it was downtown Fort Worth.
And then the second -- was in front of the Alamo in San Antonio.
And then right here so this is -- the beginning we -- started doing that we've got a remarkable sense of memory.

The first time.
I lost my car keys at the end literally -- in the walled out and I'm -- where my keys we are we're you know.
I think we still think this -- -- -- -- isn't all bad if they that's bad enough.
At the Alamo.
