I'm proud of our Vietnam Veterans

It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Remembering An American Hero
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
A Subject of many GREAT stories
My dad served with you in Vietnam. Growing up I heard the larger than life stories of Charlie Geisert. Dad told me how you took care of him on the ship (refitting a ship)...all because he knew how to play Pinochle. Then heading over to Vietnam with you. :-)
A few years back, I ran across the battle report citing your death. My dad was both shocked and saddened by it. You had died literally weeks after he said, 'goodbye' to you and shipped out for back home.
