Rest in peace cousin

Your service to our country will never be forgotten. I followed in your footsteps and spent 20 years in the army and did my time in Vietnam. Also, it’s so sad that you had to leave us so young and I’ll never forget how aunt Bridgette loved you dearly. Remember old soldiers never die we just go on. Look forward to seeing you someday in heaven.

Ground casualty

On august 24th 1966, Anthony was off-duty and was hanging out with his fellow soldiers who were playing with a grenade. One of them gave the grenade to Anthony and said it was a fake grenade. He pulled the pin and rolled it across the floor when everybody jumped for cover. Anthony realized that it was a live grenade and he ran to it to throw it away when it exploded in his hands. He died from his wounds.

This event is written down in Terry L. Naus book called "Proud Americans"

54 years has passed

You would have been 76 years old today, retired and probably with children and grandchildren. Instead of this, on this day, it has been 54 years since you left this world. Only 22 years old, with your whole life ahead of you... Instead you got killed in a far away land.

Your mother passed away in 2007, not that long ago. I believe that you are reunited in heaven, the whole family.

God bless your soul, Spiffy.
