    I was talking to Jerry Allen Kennedy before he passed away in August of 2010 and ask him where Vickey Earl Stanley lived when we played church league soft ball. Jerry was basically our coach and always provided transportation to the games. Jerry explained he lived near Abbots Creek and went on to tell me a little story.

    Mr. Kennedy as I always called him had been drafted around the same time as Vickey or “Doodle” as we called him. Jerry was stationed at Fort Bragg and had volunteered for honor guard and burial duty. One early October day in 1966 Jerry was assigned to duty and as the bus precede down the road he noticed they were headed in the direction of home (Thomasville NC).

    The SFC in charge of the detail asks if anyone knew where this town was which didn’t make much sense to Jerry. Jerry asks to se the orders and informed the Sergeant that they were to go to Pleasant Grove UMC in Thomasville which Jerry is a member.

    As Jerry later learned they were to perform the last rites military funeral for our team mate Doodle. Jerry said it did not matter how tough you think you are, this was the hardest thing he had ever done.

    Thanks you Mr. Kennedy for the story, RIP, we are one step closer to putting the team back together.

    Dear PFC Vickey Earl Stanley, 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
