  • Lee gone but never forgotten

    Posted on 4/3/16 - by Bailee Jo
    Being apart of the Peters family and learning more and more about Lee has been great. My grandma always says that he was her favorite cousin. I recently went to Washington D.C. and had the opportunity to visit the Vietnam memorial and found exactly where my third cousins name was on the wall. I got to trace his name in honor and now I have that for memory. Lee Raymond Peters, I've always wanted to meet you and tell you that you have someone in our family that is named after you because of how much of an awesome family member you were. I bet you are a great person and I am positive that we would of gotten along so well. Lee, you are in an even better place now. We love you and miss you a whole lot.
    Love, The Peters, Raygor, and Hadley families:)

    Lee, still remembering you after all this time. Remember when you were home on leave and you had that impish grin on your face teasing me. Now wish we would have had more time to talk but sadly then found out you had died. My sister made it to your funeral and wrote he most beautiful letter thinking about our brothers over there. Still have that letter and still cry every time I read it. I am so gald to have know you Lee. God Bless!!!!!

    Dear WO Lee Raymond Peters, 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

  • Lee Peters was my friend

    Posted on 6/4/12 - by Tim Gaddo
    Lee was adopted by the Peters family as an toddler. I got to know him after High School. I was working at a service station in Marshfield and there was an opening for another employee. I asked the owner if he had any applicants yet and he said 'There's this kid that applied. He's walked down here three times already to ask if anyone has been hired. If he wants the job that bad then he's probably the one I should hire.' And he did. That kid was Lee Peters. He taught me the value of perseverance. We became friends for a year or so. Then we both joined the service. I the AF, Lee learned to fly in the Army. I got home on leave once when Lee was there. He loaned me his flight computer when he learned I was taking flying lessons. But he told me it was only a loan, that he wanted it back someday. I was in Alaska when I received a letter from my sister telling me of Lee's death. She said he had only been in VN six weeks and that his plane crashed on take off. That's all I ever heard. I wrote to his Mother, was going to see her when I got home but somehow talked myself out of it. I've still got your flight computer Lee. Tim Gaddo
