    Dear SP5 Ralph Joseph Giordano, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

  • An Uncle I Never Met

    Posted on 10/12/07 - by Ashley Fielding
    I will always remember the millions of people that served for thier country in the Vietnam War. I never met my uncle but I know that he served his country well and I will always miss him. I use pictures to visualize my uncle and stories to piece his life together. No family should have to go through losing a family member and no person should have to go through a war. I admire the people that went to Vietnam and they will always hold a special place in my heart.
