Tony

We didn't know eachother in Vietnam. I was the new rifleman in 1st squad, 1st platoon. You were one of the old salts in weapons platoon. I was there in the mine field with you. The mine that got you got me. I went home. You didn't. I live for both of us. Semper Fi, brother. Rest in peace.

Dear Butchie...I remember how you used to meet me after school and walk me home.....or you and Derek would drive me home....I remember hanging out with you....I remember having an argument with you when you came home on leave...and that was the last time I saw you except for at the Funeral Home...to this day I am so sorry we argued before you left....we never got to make up. See you in Heaven, my Friend.

Summer

It always seemed to be summer. We were just kids on the streets of Brooklyn who took different paths, I to try and stop the war; you to volunteer to fight it. All our games of stickball, Ring-o-levio; handball against the wall of our tenement. You were a natural athlete, I thought that somehow you'd become a pro. All the summer nights hanging out on the corners; all the wishes to be able to live in a better place; are still with me. Your beautiful sister Pat and your parents, always close by, always keeping track of our young selves on the streets below. I and the other guys still grieve for you, still love you. I'm gong to Viet Nam soon, for the first time. I hope that I can get close to where you got hit. Our childhood died when you did, Butch

Tony, on Guard

I know it's been a long time, and hopefully longer. You were a great brother in arms. I've carried that photo of you aiming that 45 at me for years. When I saw your other picture , you sitting there kind of somber. My picture shows the playful
Tony that I remember. Consider this " When the Army or the Navy ever look on heaven's scene they will find the streets are guarded by YOU, a United States Marine" Semper Fi
