    DEAR PFC BELL,
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE AS AN INDIRECT FIRE INFANTRYMAN. YOU WERE KILLED JUST 3 DAYS BEFORE YOUR BIRTHDAY - BIG SIGH. IT IS 2017, WHICH MAKES IT FAR TOO LONG FOR YOU TO HAVE BEEN GONE. WE APPRECIATE ALL YOU HAVE DONE, AND YOUR SACRIFICE. WATCH OVER THE U.S.A., IT STILL NEEDS YOUR COURAGE.. GOD BLESS YOU. MAY THE SAINTS AND ANGELS BE AT YOUR SIDE. REST IN PEACE.

  • Happy 70th Birthday. I miss you, Dear Cousin.

    I miss your beautiful smile. I was almost 9 years old when we got word that you had been killed. It certainly tore a hole in my little heart. It was like losing a big brother since we lived only a house apart. You made the best popcorn when you would babysit us. It was real popcorn cooked on the stove with just the perfect amount of butter and salt....I miss your fun loving jokes and pranks that you pulled on anyone at any given time...They were the best!
    Just know that you have been missed so very much these past 49 years...My goodness they certainly flew by quickly.
    Love you, Tom
    Melanie

  • Happy "Up and Coming" 70th Birthday to a True Family Hero!

    Posted on 1/7/16 - by RT Vogt lazy.vea@gmail.com
    Dear Cousin Tom: You would have been the BIG 70 this coming March 24, 2016 ( a birthday we share). You were taken away from us way too soon, just 3 days before your 21st birthday!

    We look forward to seeing you again someday our friend, someday over yonder! There’s lots of things that have happened that we must fill you in on, since you’ve been away your last 49 birthdays.

    Until Then Cousin Tom, Rest in Peace.

    We were classmates at Carmel High School in Indiana. He was a nice guy and always had a ready smile. Thank you for your service and your ultimate sacrifice. You were taken way too early.
