REMEMBRANCES

  • Rememberance of Sorrow and Joy

    Posted on 5/17/18 - by Larry B. Keels== Brother of Marlowe Eugene Keels Lkeels53@gmail.com
    Marlowe is my oldest brother and I was young when I saw the soldiers approach my home to inform my parents of their loss. I remember a brother who only wanted to fight so his younger siblings did not have to go to war. The day of his death will be etched in my heart forever. I now live in another state, but make my yearly pilgrimage to place flowers on his grave and honor the bravery and the sacrifice of his life. he may be gone, but as long as I have breath, he will never be forgotten nor will I never forget the fallen soldiers that endured this heart wrenching war. My parents too are gone, but I know they are together with my brother again in heaven. Thanks to all who have remembered my brother and I wish you health and continued prosperity. America will always prosper when we have soldiers who fights that fight for its existence.

    Dear SP4 Marlowe Eugene Keels, 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

    Curt Carter

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your service to our country and for the sacrifice of your precious life.

    It is a privilege to be able to honor you for standing up for what was right and for the courage that you demonstrated.

    I know that there are many who say that the loss of your life was in vain and that the Vietnam War was a senseless war, but for this American that is not true. What you did for the freedom of others was not in vain but has always been and will always be an example of good and honor today and for generations to come.

    You will never be forgotten by me and I will honor your name and your sacrifice all my days.

    In honor of your Angel Day I leave this poem for you:

    “Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
    Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts.
    And we are never, ever the same.” ~ Unknown
