    Dear SP4 Brent Britten Nauss, 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

    Brent was a schoolmate, teammate, and all around good guy who always seemed to have a smile and kind word.

    I lived in near by Pinckney, we used to come to Howell on Saturdays to see a movie at the theater. Often we'd see Brent cruising grand river in his 1966 GEETOW TIGER a special addition GTO, what an awesome car. I still wonder what ever happened to that car.

    Brent was 7 years older than me, and we were neighbors. I was the little tomboy Bixler girl that lived a block over. I can remember Brent and Andy Z. teasing me until they could get me to come at them with my fists swinging! They held me away from them with a straight arm to my forehead as I swung away. I loved it!
    I was 13/14 years old when the news hit Howell, Michigan they had lost one of their own. My first and only experience of losing someone to a war. I found him on the Vietnam Wall during a visit in 2010. Thank you, Brent, for your service and the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

    I never met you Brent. I do live on the street that is named after you. I also wear a bracelet in your honor. I thank you so very much for your sacrifice and will remember you in my prayers always.

    I will always remenber Brent Nauss who was my best freind and took my place on track # 12 and died in front of me.I still have to live with this and I ask god why did he let us switch places.Our orders were that I was tomove off track 10 that broke down and with brent so short on time he could have went back with the track and maybe went home from there.But he told me to go with the track because he didn't want to work on gettinng the engine cover off.God that was a move I will nevver understand.I seen his parents after I came home to tell his father how much ne loved him.That hurt so much to see his dad that both of us cryed and just held each other for a long time.I will never forget that man. I just hope that I made him proud of me and my life that he gave to me.Love you Brent....

    I served with Brent he was in my Section, A Troop 1/1 Cav. Americal Division, he was a good friend. It is hard to believe he was KIA when he was so close to coming home. Everyone that knew Brent liked him. He was a special person, I will always remember him.
