Father and son share mission to create memorial for Afghan, Iraq veterans

Towson native Nicholas Walters, left, said he was inspired when his father, Sanford Walters, a Vietnam vet, gained comfort from a reunion at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. That experience prompted Nicholas to launch an effort to build a memorial for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans in Washington, D.C. Above, Nick holds an Army boot camp portrait of his father, while Sanford holds a portrait of he and his wife, Connie, on their wedding day in 1969.
