  • Cousins

    My grandfather, Louis, was Bernard's father's first cousin. As kids we gathered for occasional family get togethers. It was only years later that I read the account of Bernard's heroism in 'We Were Soldier's...'. My parents never knew the story and I wonder if Bernard's parent's knew? It might have been some comfort to know how many American lives he and his machine gun squad saved by their brave holding action. I am touched also by the first post in this thread by Dana Chase and her remembrance of first love and what might have been. Bless them both.

    I trained with Bernie at Fort Dix, NJ. and Fort Benning, GA.
    We were station at Fort Benning, GA. I still miss Bernie
    each since I saw his name on my company's bulletin board
    stating that he had lost his life in Viet Nam.
    I had the pleasure of meeting his parents just before he
    left to serve with the First Calvary in Viet Nam.
    Rest in peace my brother for I will always remember you!
