    I wish we had met. Sometimes I think you left early because I am you and you were me. Doesn't make sense I know, but it also doesn't make sense that being a helicopter pilot rescuing people is whatbI want to become damn all the consequences. Death or life is irrelevant. As long as they are ok. You were in love and gave a girl Grandma's rings. You told her you knew you were going to go home. Two weeks later they brought your body home.
    I have spent my entire life looking at your picture on your headstone. Playing on your marble slab grave. Not an ounce of guilt, when no one was watching..I can't explain how your death has been a quiet remembrance. Now, everyone is gone. Your sister and brother, mother and father-all waiting. But if I am right. And you are me and I am you-then they are waiting for us. I feel silly, but you died twelve years before I was born. But I can't watch movies or TV shows about Vietnam without seeing things. So, until I die, and find out if I share your soul-for Now-I I really wish we could have met. I think my life would have been different if you had lived. We would have been inseparable. I am an A&P now. Aviation is my love and passion. Gave teaching up, because it was THAT strong of a calling. Only one in the family too. Odd, huh?
    Until we meet again. I left you a letter at the wall years ago. Hope you got it. I love you.
    Always and forever,
    Little Diana .....Tina Watford

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC William W Davis Jr, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, Sir

    On the second floor of the Del Norte County Historical Society Museum in Crescent City, CA is a display case which honors soldiers who lost their life in Vietnam. The display case sits beneath a plaque provided by the Pacific Northwest Chapter of Vietnow. The plaque was dedicated May 1, 1997, and begins with the inscription “All Gave Some…Some Gave All…Some Are Still Giving…” It also lists the names of 32 soldiers who lost their life in the war. On display inside the case are many of the items left by family and loved ones at The Moving Wall, a replica of the national Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall that was on display in Crescent City at Beachfront Park July 1-7, 1993.
