Broken Hearts have long memoriesPosted on 7/28/16 - by Dyanne DelaneyNicky,MORE
You were such a handsome and wonderful guy, engaged to my best friend, Terri Mullen who I had known since grade school. When we got the horrific news, it was life-shattering. I don't even need to close my eyes to see the faces of all who loved you in the funeral parlor. I held on to Terri as we walked together to your casket to say our goodbyes. Tears still sting my eyes and flow freely as I remember that moment, and think of the countless members of families and friends of soldiers who, like you, paid the ultimate price for freedom. I never pass your house, raise a flag, honor Memorial or Veterans Day, or hear taps without thinking of you. I hope, as you look down from heaven, you know some hearts which were broken when you left will always remember you. And I hope, if there are roaring fast cars in heaven, that God had a smokin' hot one ready for you!

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.

Army Flight School ClassmatePosted on 2/12/14 - by James WollardNick and I were in same flight class at Ft Rucker Al. In 1969. We both went to Nam at same time. Nick was assigned somewhere up north, I was assigned to IV corps. I learned about Nicks passing while in country from another classmate. I have never forgotten Nick. He was a muscle car guy like myself. He bought a 69 Camaro SS 396 4 speed at Ft Rucker before graduating. We had lots of fun in that car. I think about my friends from flight school all the time. RIP Nick.MORE

Never ForgottenPosted on 7/15/05 - by Bill Nelson firstname.lastname@example.orgALWAYS REMEMBEREDMORE
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.
