In memoriam to Nicholas CancillaPosted on 12/12/14 - by GMG3 Robert Parra email@example.comNicholas, I remember when you and Robbie went out on patrol on PBR 148. I was on the pier and watched the boat pull away. I was also a PBR 148 gunner and was devastated when I heard that you and Robbie were killed. I never forgot you and thanks to this website was able to find your image again. I will pay tribute to you every time I visit The Viet Nam Wall. Thank you for your service.MORE
Remembering An American HeroPosted on 2/28/14 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear GMG3 Nicholas Cancilla, sirMORE
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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
