Texas Man Has Memorized Name Of Every American Killed In Afghan War
Ron White is on a nationwide tour where he writes down the names non a 50-foot-long erase board at every stop.
He debuted the amazing feat at Fort Worth’s Burnett Park last week, captivating onlookers as he listed the dead by chronological order on dry-erase panels imitating the Vietnam Wall.
“I’m choked by the reaction of it all,” White, 39, told the Daily News on Sunday…
“I had the park reserved for two days, and I was mentally, emotionally and physically drained. Then I went to take down the wall on Thursday night,” he continued. “I had no idea people were coming back and were putting flowers there.”
White, a former Navy intelligence specialist who toured Afghanistan in 2007, has made a name for himself as a so-called brain athlete and memory champion. He’s appeared on national TV and holds seminars on memory building.
