    Joseph it was your 1st day in my brother Bob's platoon. I'm sorry he didn't even know your name yet. But when the helicopters dropped the platoon off and left, the enemy ambushed the platoon from bunkers, and you fell during the first shots. My brother tried to come to your aid but it was too late. I am sorry you lost your life that day. My brother also died that day, and I am proud to say 5 years ago at the Vietnam Wall 30th anniversary on Veteran's Day weekend I was able to read my brother's and your name during the ceremony. I will be going again this year and will be proud to read your name along with my brother Bob's during the 35th anniversary. I pray somehow to find a relative to get your picture to place on this web site. God Bless you Joseph and I know you and Bob are together in Heaven. Thank You

    Dear PFC Joseph Robert Scott, 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

    Curt Carter

    Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul....and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.
