    Hard to believe fifty years will have passed since we shipped from the 509th in Germany and went to the 173d Airborne in Vietnam. I have missed you my friend and think of you often.

    Dear Sgt Bruce Coley,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. December is almost gone, along with all the preparations. It is the 5th Day of Christmas. It is so 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 strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    I remember you. We were in the same platoon, different squads, but same platoon. I liked you, you were a friend. I will always remember you. Rest In Peace, you deserve more than words can say. I want to say more, but I find I am unable to.

    I can't believe it's almost 46 yrs. since we lost you. Like most Brothers growing up,all we did was fight with each other. We always hated it when Ma made one of us take you along wherever we was going. How different things would have been had we known we would lose you at such a young age. We never got to tell you how much we love you. We never got to Hug you. You learn as you get older what a Brother really means to you. For years now Russ and I talk every Sunday morning for two hours. Years ago he sent me your Vietnam pictures and when Ma died, he passed on your flag to me. We never forgot you. Well Bruce,somewhere down that road,Russ & I are going to tell you how much we missed you and we are going to get that Hug. RIP Brother, Steve & Russ
