  • My childhood friend

    Posted on 5/29/17 - by Robert Fischer
    We were friends at the age of 5, ran around town (Poteet tx) as friends got into kid kind of trouble. The family moved to Oxnard, Ca. when Billy was !0 or 11. The last time I saw Billy, was right before he went to Vietnam when he came to Poteet. Always my friend. Thank you God for men like Billy.

    Bill and I were classmates at Oxnard HS and graduated the same year. Although we were not close friends, we were in a number of classes together. God Bless, him and the brave sacrifice he made on behalf of our country. It's such a tragedy when one so young is lost and misses out on so many rich life experiences that likely awaited him. RIP and know that your ultimate sacrifice is appreciated though many years have passed.
  • My Hero

    My brother, my hero. Being so young when you were killed, it hurts my heart that I did not get to know you as an adult. What were your likes, dislikes, beliefs, etc. I was told you died doing something you believed in and that your actions saved lives. For that I am thankful and proud. My daughter Dana has a purple heart tattoo to honor the uncle she never met but heard stories of. The 2 of you would certainly have butted heads just as she and I have butted heads - must run in the family. How ironic that years after your death I would meet a man named Len Newcomb while working at the District Attorney's Office only to learn that he picked flowers in the field with both you and Kurt Holmes! Len was working there putting himself through the Oxnard P.D. academy and served dad and the racing crew coffee . . what a small world! I am thankful you are with mom and dad and that all wounds have been healed. Rest now my brother and know that you are always in my heart. I love and miss you
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC William Andrew Gould, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice 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. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

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