    I grew up a block and a half away from you and graduated with your brother Bob. I didn't really know you I still remember being,in Spanish class, I can see the room, see where I was sitting the day they announced you died. I'm thankful every day for the brave young men and women who died for this great country. God Bless you, Bill.

    The picture was provided by Herb Reckinger Jr. of Cottage Grove, Minnesota. Thank you Herb!

    William, it is with great humility, pride and honor that Herb and I post this remembrance for you and upload your photo so that your memory and the sacrifice you made for your country will never be forgotten and to ensure your photo will be displayed on your birthday each and every year when the Education Center is completed. You are not forgotten and remain in the hearts of many after all these years. Thank you William for being who you were and for all you did. We live in freedom to this day thanks to heroes like you

    You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor William.

    Dear SP4 William Edward Lilienthal, 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, Sir
