always in my heart

we were ambushed at@ 3am on January 9th,1970.
Walt, most of us called him "red", was hit in the initial burst and although seriously wounded he courageously and selflessly attacked the enemy's fire.
He saved the lives of his friends including mine.
I spent 9 months with Red, most in the bush.
He had the heart of a lion.....and was Loved by all.
THE BEST DIDN'T COME HOME.
Fredrick E. Gottwald
11B 1969-70

A distant relative who is my hero and inspired me.

Though I wasn't born but 3 years after you gave the ultimate sacrifice , you were a hero to me growing up. You are my grandmothers nephew.
I didn't know much about you except you gave your life in service of this nation in Vietnam.
Just knowing that you did something greater than yourself made you my hero and it inspired me to serve this nation as well.
I also took the oath and served in the Army, albeit during peace time.
Thank You Ski. I really wish I could have met you but you will always be a part of me in spirit.
P.S. My son looks a lot like you.
