We Will Remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Served with the "Tripple Duce" and from Wappingers Falls also

Did not know Bill, sounds like a great guy. I served with the HHC, 3/22 and left in March 68. We set up the base camp at Dao Tang and operated all over the Iron Triangle. I graduated from RC Ketcham in 64, and just learned that we both went to the same high school and served with the same battalion, one in a million chance of that. I wish I had known Bill, I would have been proud to have served with him.

YOU ARE LOVED

On this Memorial Day, I would like to pay tribute to you Billy. I knew you when I was quite young, but I have thought of you every Memorial Day and at other times over these many years. You were engaged to Pam, one of my close friends then and now. We all went to Roy C. Ketcham High School. I knew that when she finished school and after your tour in Vietnam, you would share your love with all and be married. Your services were my first experience with this kind of loss, going to a wake and a funeral, and seeing a friend in such pain. I guess that is why it is etched in my mind to this day. I remember a handsome man in uniform with a wonderful smile and a plan for life and love for Pam. You gave your life for all of us, you will always be a Hero! Rest in Peace William (Billy) Michael Cruise! You are gone, but certainly never forgotten. P.S. Pam still loves you!

Never Forgotten

Forty-nine years ago Bill was killed in Vietnam 10 miles from Tay Ninh City and not far from the Cambodian border in a battle at Fire Support Base Crook in the jungle of War Zone C. He was 21 years old. Bill was the pride of Wappingers Falls, NY and Roy C. Ketcham High School. He came from a wonderful family and was a star athlete. Almost a half-century later, we honor and salute the memory of Bill. We will never forget him.
