    Thank you for your service Uncle Harold. Thank you for being so selfless to serve and protect our country. I myself am so thankful for you Uncle Harold. It's said there's no greater love than for a man to lay his life down for his friends. You, Uncle Harold, did that and I couldn't be more thankful for your sacrifice to make sure that my generation would grow up in a free and sovereign country. Though you died before my time I'll always remember you and I'll always be thankful. I love you Uncle Harold. Semper Fi Marine

    It's been almost (50) years since We went to Mess together early in the afternoon so that there would be time to relieve the Guys out on OP so they could get in for some Hot Food............Somehow, we decided that I would go Relieve the OP while you'd go back to the Ammo Bunker to get more munitions and pyrotechnics.......................I never saw you again, Harold.
    But your Music lives on............I think often of you when I hear your Country Western........Your Platoon Members of K-3-4 were especially saddened when we had to pack up your Player in your Seabag........Rest In Peace - YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN. .....................Dan K-3-4 Phu Bai

    Dear LCPL Harold Eugene Watkins, 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
