Scene

The action of the play takes place on the back porch of the J.P. Good farmhouse in Northwest Arkansas.

Time: the present.

"Each name is preceded (on the west wall) or followed (on the east wall) by one of two symbols: a diamond or a cross. The diamond symbol denotes that the servicemanís or servicewomanís death was confirmed. The approximately 1,300 men whose names are designated by the cross symbol were wither missing or prisoners at the end of the war and remain missing and unaccounted for."

"In the event a servicemanís remains are returned or he is otherwise accounted for, the diamond symbol will be superimposed over the cross. If a man returns alive, a circle, as a symbol of life, will be inscribed around the cross."
