In Fond Memory of Scotty Coplin

Scotty Coplin was assigned to my squad when he arrived in Country in Nov., 1969, as I can recall. I was his squad leader and yet only one of his many "Mentors." We tended to "harrass" the "New Guys" when they arrived in country but Scott's quiet, good nature pretty much kept everyone from going much too much to him. He really didn't seem to need it. He had an intelligent, charming and willing attitude which made you trust him right away.
I remember him as one of the "True Innocents" who was taken from us. He shared about his family and the fact that he raised dogs back home in Ohio. I have a picture taken of him petting a German Shepard one day in Viet Nam which really, to me, captures his sweet and boyish nature and his love of animals. I often wondered what it was that brought this fine, quiet young man to this time and place in the world and why, after his death, "HIM.... of all people?"
Not long after returning home I received a letter from his mother asking me to share what I knew of Scotty and the circumstances around his death. I regret to this very day that I couldn't ever bring myself to answer her letter. Was it my bitterness or the pain? Mom Coplin, or any other relative..... if you would like to contact me today, please feel free. It's been 29 years now and I would love to bless you with what I remember of my friend the world decided to take from us back in 1970. God Bless and help us all for those deeds we do in anger and in shame and may he change our hearts to bless instead of curse those souls we are allowed to touch in this life.
In Loving Remembrance of a fine young man, Scott Rondal Coplin.
