    Hi Lenny,
    Today you are on my mind as it’s the day we honor our fallen. It’s been so long but my thoughts of you are just as vivid as 50 yrs ago. I know you are in a peaceful place in heaven but sure wish there were visiting hours there. Tell Mom, Dad, Janis, Patty, Susan, Linda, Jane and Danny hello. Thank you for your sacrifice and helping to keep us safe. Bye for now, your old football buddy, Sister Raechel

    Oh Lenny, I think of you often. Especially today on the anniversary of your death. 50 yrs. I wonder what life would have given you. Tell Mom, Dad, Janis, Patty, Susan, Linda, Jane, and Danny Hello. I miss you all so much.
    Thank you for giving this country freedom. You were such a hero and deserved the Congressional Medal of Honor for your valor. Love, your sister Raechel

    I think of you often Lenny. We are only 3 yrs apart and I remember the fun we had as kids. I've been reading all your letters to Susan. I learned so much about you. You really loved snow eh? I hated that war that took your innocent life. I will see you in heaven soon. Tell Mom,Dad,Susan,Patty,Janis,Jane,Linda,and Danny hello.

    DEAR PFC BORCHARD,
    THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE AS AN INFANTRYMAN WITH THE 1ST CAVALRY. MIKE WAS ALSO 1ST CAV, SAY HI TO HIM. FRANKIE WAS ALSO KILLED IN QUANG TRI, SAY HI TO HIM TOO. YESTERDAY WAS THE 42ND ANNIVERSARY OF THE FALL OF SAIGON. I AM SO SORRY. IT HAS BEEN FAR TOO LONG FOR ALL OF YOU TO HAVE BEEN GONE. WE APPRECIATE ALL YOU HAVE DONE, AND YOUR SACRIFICE. WATCH OVER THE U.S.A., IT STILL NEEDS YOUR COURAGE. GOD BLESS YOU. MAY THE ANGELS BE AT YOUR SIDE. REST IN PEACE. YOU ARE ALL IN OUR PRAYERS.
