    I am so glad that a picture of you was found and posted here. I was XO of C Troop, 1st Squadron 1st Armored Cavalry Troop and Horace worked in our motor pool and drove me around. I met a nurse in Vietnam who I later married - Horace cleaned and shined up that jeep I drove whenever I went out on a date - it looked better than the one the general had! Horace I have never forgotten you as well as the Troopers you were with at Khe Son when you all passed to eternal life with the lord. God bless and keep you until we meet again. LT.

    Dear Spec 4 Horace Burton,
    I hope your photo is put here because this wall of faces really needs yours. Thank you for your service as a General Vehicle Repairman with the 1st Cavalry. It is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    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.

    With respect, Sir
