    Sgt. Rand taught me Military Science at Xavier High School (1955-59). He was a true gentleman and knew how to deal with everyone on a personal and professional level. I had and have the utmost respect for him. I served US Army 1963-7.

    Dear Mr. Rand,
    You do not know me, but you knew my father Doc Hurley. He spoke highly of you from what I have read. I have had the honor of meeting your daughter, Lorette. I hope to become good friends with her. I just lost my father 2 weeks ago. I can only hope that the 2 of you will meet up again and talk about old times. If you happen to run into him, tell him that I love and miss him very much. Be sure to look after him for me. Thanks and I am happy that he will have you for a friend up there.

    Dear Mr. Rand,
    You may not know me, but I hope that you have crossed paths with my father Rich Githens who was KIA in Vietnam 29 May 1968. You must be so very proud of your daughter. She is a proud, loving and beautiful young woman who works very hard to keep your legacy alive with other fathers you share the Wall with. I'm so proud to call your daughter my friend and my sister. Thank you, Mr. Rand for creating such a wonderful person. SDIT and this world in general is a better place because of her. You did good! We'll never forget you.

    Dear Daddy,

    I was with Doc Joe Hurley yesterday visiting you at The Wall. He left you his Bronze Star because he said, "he earned it."

    You are remembered and loved by everyone who ever met you.

    Your loving daughter,
