    Dear PFC William Denhoff,
    Thank you for your service as a Rifleman. Your 52nd anniversary is in 2 days, happy birthday. Monday was the 43rd anniversary of the Fall of Saigon. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Hello Bill,
    We didn't know each other very well, but I do remember you from school. It seems like many from Seattle died in that province. You got an early start in Vietnam. I was still in boot. I did 13 months in Korea and 11 months in Vietnam.

    Anyway, October 3rd will be our 50 year reunion. I hope you are there in spirit so we can toast you and all of the rest of our fallen brothers.

    Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
