REMEMBRANCES

  • To Kevin Cahill

    Kevin a friend from the past, I searched for your name when last I was at the wall, not knowing where you stationed made it difficult. My husband helped me search and our boys but they didn't know how to look. Guess I didn't either for I never found your name.
    RIP friend, marine, Soldier RIP!

  • Remembering an American Hero

    Dear LCPL Kevin Arthur Cahill, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    Curt Carter

  • I'll Never Forget You !

    In high school Kevin and I shared shared some classes together, so we saw each other every day. He was a real good kid and I enjoyed having him in my classes. Of course that would change after we graduated.

    One of the last times I remember seeing Kevin was a month after we graduated from Lynn English High. It was at a Rolling Stones concert tour stop, held in Lynn's Manning Bowl, at the end of June 1966.

    We met up on the field at the front row about 25 feet from the stage. Kevin and I were jumping up on each others shoulders to get better views as the Stones performed. We were laughing and having a good time.

    The concert ended (prematurely) because of the pushing that started in the rear. So the cops panicked and started spraying everyone up front with tear gas which got both of us. That ended the fun.

    From time to time I still think of that night Kevin and I enjoyed that Rolling Stones concert and our time in school. Those were very good days!

    Kevin, may you always rest in peace, my friend.
