    62 years have passed since we met. Grew up in neighborhood, went to school, ran around as friends, worked a printing job together. He joined Army first, I enlisted a few months later for helicopter flight school. Wrote letters, he was in Vietnam before me. When I graduated flight school and headed to Nam on April 15 1969, I had told him I would see him and contact when I got in-country. He died April 17 1969, I was told this in my first letter from my mother. RIP Brother!

    Dear SGT Roy Everett Bright, 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, Sir
