Your Earthly resting place

I did not know you, Richard. But when I get out to Long Beach to stop by my parents' resting places, I make note of your resting place directly to the left. I wondered about your service in Vietnam and finally found this site of remembrance. We were the same age when you died in service to our country and your fellow soldiers. I always wondered what happened to you in Vietnam. Judging by the medals you recieve, you must have been one heck of a helicopter pilot! Your sacrifice will not be lost in the lives of those you helped. When I do stop by to visit, I make sure to tidy up your headstone as well as what appears to be your parents' headstone which lie directly to the left of my parents'. My brother was killed in a car accident in 1964 and it left our family devastated. I can imagine how your death affected your family. That tragedy is something that never escapes the souls of parents. Jesus said, "No greater love has a man than to give up his life for a friend."
