If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. William Newcomer FEASTER, USA...who died for our country!!!

If I should die,, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...;Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

I knew his parents

I spent about ten summers living next door in Wolfeboro, NH to William's parents. Dr. Feaster was also a reverend. William was their only son. My family went there every summer since I was a baby, so when I was a teenager (born in 1955), I learned of their profound loss but they never spoke of it. I guess it was too painful. I never asked, not wishing to upset them. I live in MD and went to the Vietnam Veterans Wall and looked up their son long after they both passed away. Today, I am so surprised to run across this site. How remarkable so see a photograph of the Feaster's son who looks exactly like his father! Thank you for this!

On Your Angel Day

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your service to our country and for the sacrifice of your precious life.

It is a privilege to be able to honor you for standing up for what was right and for the courage that you demonstrated.

I know that there are many who say that the loss of your life was in vain and that the Vietnam War was a senseless war, but for this American that is not true. What you did for the freedom of others was not in vain but has always been and will always be an example of good and honor today and for generations to come.

You will never be forgotten by me and I will honor your name and your sacrifice all my days.

In honor of your Angel Day I leave this poem for you:

“Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts.
And we are never, ever the same.” ~ Unknown

A great man

I went over with the Chaplain on the same boat as another Chaplains assistant. We worked together since Ft.Devens and he always was a man who gave of himself. He has made me a better man for knowing him. I will always miss him. The picture is from the ship on the way to Nam.
