    Your name appeared today in our local newspaper honoring your service of 50 years ago. You lived in the neighborhood I grew up in though I never knew you.

  • Dear Sgt.

    Posted on 3/16/16
    I recently watched the movie Brothers in War where your friend speaks about losing you, but I don't think your lost Sgt. What you've done for our country means more to me than anything. I thank you for giving your life and giving up everything to protect us. You serve a special place in my heart. Thank you Sgt and know that we will fight on and never forget those who have done what you have done, you'll always be remembered and never forgotten

    With love,
