    Dear SSGT Melvin Dye,
    Thank you for your service as a Huey, UH-2 Helicopter Repairer. I am glad you were identified in 2009. Yesterday was Independence Day, and we remember your sacrifice. We remember all you who gave their all. 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.

    Coming from my home town, I have waited so many years to see your name under "found". Your family has sacrificed and suffered so much. God bless and rest your courageous soul Melvin. SOG Recon missions were the most dangerous of the Vietnam War, volunteers only. You will always be my hero, and never forgotten by your other brothers as well.
  • I always think of you

    Dear Great Uncle Melvin, I didn't get the chance to know you but I know the man you were through our family. My heart stings some times at the thought of you. I search the words of anyone who knew you for any new piece of information regarding you. If I could have the chance to talk to you I'd want you to know that I love you. I'd want you to know how grateful I am to have a Uncle like you. I'd talk to you about the Lord (cause I know how much you loved him). Your an ever present thought and a missing puzzle piece in my life. Thank you for everything you gave up... for me. I look forward to seeing you again one day. I hope your one of the first faces I see the day I meet our King. Until then, I'll never forget.
