    So many of them were just boys when the upped. Sad loss of life no matter where or when. They died for a cause, to preserve America's freedom and restore peace in a war torn country. We did the a great disservice when they left and, for those that came back alive (barely) we treated them with disdain. We're doing our best to make up for that but sometimes out best is not enough..God bless them all

    I remember your blond hair and big smile as you jot past my house on Foster Way, Sometimes you stopped and we chatted a bit. I was 3 years older than you, but I still thought you were such a cutie. I don't remember how I found out about what happened to you in Vietnam, but I never forgot you and never will. I will continue to remember you in my prayers and will see you again some day. Lovingly, Helen
