    Larry was a brave and courageous friend who gave the ultimate sacrifice - to fight communism so others could be free. Without such AMERICAN men from all previous generations and wars we and many others around the world would not be free today. I was fairly safe on an aircraft carrier off Vietnam in 1972 after the Army was pulled out, but knew we would end it and we did by bombing relentlessly for 9 months. We always thought about those who served before us. So Sad Larry and Stan Sargent - two good friends - did not make it back, but they are remembered along with the other 58K who fought and died so others could be free.

    I did not personally know Larry Kelly. He was a few years ahead of me in High School. He, none the less left a very strong impression on me and many of my classmates. Especially those in ROTC. His service and sacrifice are greatly appreciated and his dedication, honor, courage and finally, his willingness to give his all were and still are a lofty goal for all our Brothers and Sisters-in-arms. He died in a foreign land a hero to be remembered, honored and, revered as a person of great integrity and personal strength. A role model for all who would follow in his steps. Gone but NOT Forgotten. Rest in peach my Brother
