GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

Alvin was my older brother's best friend. He was well mannered and soft spoken. He had a crazy sense of humor, a wild laugh and a great smile to go along with it.
He came by to say goodbye the night before he shipped out to Vietnam.
It was surreal and freaked me out.
He told us that he had a bad feeling that he wouldn't be coming back home.
Quite a heroic story leading up to his death. He would still have been a hero in my eyes if he'd fled to Canada instead. R. I. P. Alvin.
He was 20 years old and never got to meet his new son.
I turned 15 two days after Alvin's death, At age 20 I joined the military. The war was starting to wind down at that time. The 60s were a crazy time in our history and our government is still using our youth for cannon fodder in wars we have no business in being in. Nothing has changed,it's still crazy.
