  • A note to my cousin

    Dear Steve,
    I remember when we got the call from your mother telling us that we would never see you again. The reality of that was too much for an 8 year old. We had prayed for your safe return every day and we longed for the day you would return and give us piggy-back rides and play crazy games with us. Your mother's pain is something I cannot comprehend as a parent myself now. Please know that your memory will never die as I talk of you often to my children and I tell them that they must always remember the men and women who gave all to their country.
    'Til we meet again,

    Dear LCPL Stephen Leslie Boyd, 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

    I`m so sorry to hear about my friend Stephen......I never knew until just recently about him going to Viet Nam.
    He was a great friend in high school in Germany.
