    I went today, July 9, 2016, to remember you at the Traveling Viet Nam Wall. You had a wonderful personality and a beautiful warm smile. You were a Lynn boy and will be forever remembered. I thank you for being so brave and serving your country. John 15:13 King James Version (KJV)
    13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. You definitely gave the Ultimate Sacrifice for me and America. You may be gone, but you are never forgotten. I just want to say THANK YOU!
