REMEMBRANCES

  • 51 Years Later

    Posted on 1/14/18 - by Brenda Floyd Underwood—Proud Gold Star Sister bfu@comcast.net
    Dear Lonnie, It’s been 51 years since you were killed. I still miss you more each day than you can imagine. I try my best to honor you and your memory on each occasion available. You now have a flag that will always be flying in your memory on Veterans Bridge. I’m not sure if it was built when you were still alive. You have a Bridge on Hwy. 27 named in your honor. Mike Carter read your name when the VVMF held the Reading of All Names on the Wall in DC. I’ve read your name for the two occasions held every five years. I read your name at Ft.Benning when the 173rd ABN honored their fallen Sky Soldiers. I visited Vietnam and stood on the ground where you were killed along with Wambi Cook, a 173rd Veteran. These are just a few things we’ve done to honor you. You will never be forgotten by any of your family. You were so special to each of us. I know you’re in Heaven and that you watch over us each day. You are remembered for so many things by your family and friends. The soldiers you served with have shared many memories with me. The Bronze Star with V for Valor awarded to you speaks volumes of your bravery. I wish I could hug you and tell you how much I love and miss you but since I can’t I will hug you with my heart where you’ve always been and where you’ll remain. Rest In Peace Lonnie.

    WOW! You look younger than 19 in the pictures I've seen of you. I'm always saddened when I find a memorial of someone so young. I'm sure you would have had a nice life had you endured Vietnam. On the other hand, God wanted you with him in Heaven. Your family and many others will make sure that you are always remembered.

    On July 29,2017 you would've been 70 years old. The years have flown by in some ways and in other ways it seems like forever since you left. You've never been forgotten for a single day and never will. Everyone who ever knew you still remembers you and misses you. My heart was broken when you were killed and still just as broken. I've been so blessed with two sons and grandsons who are so much like you. They know all about the hero you are and they'll always remember you and through them their children will know you. You will live forever in our hearts. I love and miss you more each day.
    Happy Birthday!

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
