50 Years AgoPosted on 1/15/17 - by Brenda Floyd Underwood - Proud Goldstar Sister firstname.lastname@example.orgLonnie, it's been 50 years since that day when our family was changed forever. Since then mother and daddy plus so many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends have joined you in Heaven. I thought the grief of losing you would last forever and it has seemed forever but our tears have dried. After watching so many of the veterans who did come home suffer from PTSD, Agent Orange, Cancer and many other after effects of the war, I know in my heart you have been at peace with your role in Vietnam. I know that you have been spared all of these horrible things that plague your friends, I think of you so often when I look at my own sons and their families and I wonder what your family would've looked like. I think of being retired and wonder what you would be retired from. I look at your toy Army trucks and I think you had decided to be a soldier when you were just a little boy. You were a brave soldier and one that I will always be proud of. Through you I have come to appreciate all of our veterans in a way that I never could have without you. I've met so many people I would never have met without you. Your character, honesty, integrity and loyalty have been words that your friends continue to use when remembering you. You have set the example for your nieces and nephews. Lonnie, I will never forget you and the sacrifice you made for our family and country. I will always see you, hear you and love you. I will honor you and your memory as long as I live and one day I'll join you and all of our family and friends in Heaven. Someday I hope I can come up with the words to express how much you meant to me and how much I miss you. Rest In Peace Sky Soldier.MORE
Long time PalPosted on 8/12/16 - by Tom BrightwellWas talking about you tonight Lonnie. Saw a picture of a weary Sky Trooper, and just wanted to tell you that you are missed. Will never forget our races, that I never won, up the hill after football practice.MORE
Happy BirthdayPosted on 7/29/16 - by Brenda Floyd Underwood Gold Star Sister Bfu@comcast.netHappy 69th Birthday to you Lonnie. You've celebrated the last 50 years in Heaven with the Angels. I miss you so much but I know you're better off in Heaven. So many of your fellow soldiers are suffering from Agent Orange and PTSD and so many effects of the war. I visited the place you were killed in Vietnam and one day soon I'll post the pictures and write of my 10 days there walking where you walked. I met another buddy of yours at the 173rd Reunion. His name is Wendell Satterfield and he told me some stories about you two. I know your friends respected you as you respected them while serving. It seems that everyday I receive a sign from you in Heaven. I know you're watching over me. I so look forward to the day we have a family reunion in Heaven. Oh what a day that will be. I miss you and I love you. I've never forgotten you and never will. Rest in peace Lonnie.MORE

I know our Lord has a plan for each of our lives and it is not up to us to question why, but to place our faith and trust all the more in Him as our sovereign God that makes no mistakes. You would love and be so proud of your nieces and nephews for the way they learned about you and the Viet Nam War. I wish you could see some of the papers they have written and projects they have presented to honor you and your legacy in their schools .We love and miss you and looking forward to time when we will see you again . What a great reunion one day in heaven this will be .We remember and honor you on this Memorial Day.MORE
