As Brance mentioned earlier this week, Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent were to perform More Than a Name on a Wall with Jimmy Fortune as a part of this four day remembrance this past Wednesday. The song, which Fortune wrote and recorded with The Statler Brothers, is among the selections on the upcoming debut release from The Dailey Vincent Band.

After the opening ceremonies, Jamie, Darrin and Jimmy were among the many volunteers who read the names of the fallen veterans inscribed on the wall. All 58, 256 names will be read over the course of the four ceremony, which concludes on Saturday (11/10).
