    Ernest Skinner was my uncle and I never knew him. He was killed before I was born. My oldest son has his name as his middle name in his honor. It is my understanding from my mom and other relatives that he was a very honorable man. I am proud that he is my uncle but am sadded by his loss. I am very proud that he fought for our freedom so long ago, as all americans should be of our veterans. With great admiration and love for him.

    Ernie, It was 34 years ago today that we lost you, Bill, and Sgt. Warren. I wrote a note to Bill a few minutes ago and am trying to find the strength to finish this one to you. I was with you most of that short day. When You, I and another (whom I can not remember his name) was trying to find Sgt. Warren when we ran into trouble and that damn M16 was jammed. We got out of that mess only to run into more with the squad. You gave your life trying to help others. That was the kind of person and leader you were. The memory of you has been with me for all these years and will never leave my heart.
    I remember your and Bill's plans when you got back to the world only to have them cut short. I hope your and Bill's family and friends have been able to survive their loss and I wish I could have done something in my lifetime to help them. The guilt that comes when we ask ourselves, why you and not me or someone else. No answer seems to come.
    I hope someone from your family or your friends reads this and contacts me. I welcome the chance to speak with them.

    I miss you and Bill
