BHHS Student Remembers A Fallen Hero

I am extremely sorry for what happened to Leon. I would like to know more about him and am currently doing a fallen hero project on him. I know that he left on Christmas to serve in South Vietnam. Sadly, he was killed by small arms fire in the province of Thua Thien. I also know that he was a Roman Catholic. If anyone has any further information, could you please email me at dpbend@verizon.net

Thank you...

Dear Leon Atteridge: A rememberance from a BHS Student

Dear Leon,
When I heard about you I knew I had to write something special. You were 23 whne you were sent to Vietname in the 101st Airborn division. It was Christmas time. That was the last time you got to unwrap presents because, tradgically a few months later, you were killed in action.
You were a brave person. After attending Roger Williams University and Weslyan College, you signed up for the airforce, and extremely brave decision indeed.
You fought to uphold the rights, freedom and honor of our country. You will never be forgotten.

Sincerely yours,
Michelle M. D.
