honoring you...

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.

Ground Casualty

A1C Lawrence B. Forrester was assigned to the 315th Supply Squadron, 315th Tactical Airlift Wing, 7th Air Force, at Phan Rang Air Base, Ninh Thuan Province, RVN. Phan Rang was a huge military base on the coast of the South China Sea, thirty miles south of Cam Rahn Bay. In 1971, as the war was winding down and the Army was pulling out its troops, they needed men for guard duty and to react to any hostilities. They decided to take some of the airmen and turn them into U.S. Army augmentees. A1C Forrester was put through 12 weeks of basic training, stripped of all that he was before he went in, and put on guard duty. Some of it was easy duty, just guarding a recreational beach outside the base or manning a tower. The augmentee duty would last two weeks at a time. The other two weeks in the month would be spent doing assigned jobs. On September 20, 1971, Forrester was fatally injured at Phan Rang where it was reported he was run over by a garbage truck.
