My Fathers friend.

My Father And Lt Giles were best friends before they both shipped out to Vietnam. He was at my parents wedding. My mother gave me the gift he gave for their wedding and it holds a place of honor in my home. "Frank" as my dad always called him when he talked about him is the only one my father ever talked about from Vietnam. Thank you for your friendship to my father you meant the world to him. he feels your loss to this day.

From a Soldier that served with Lt. Giles.

I was Lt. Giles radio operator for the first 4 months of our Vietnam tour. He was a courageous and excellent soldier. He promoted me to team leader. The next day he was leading the platoon into a village and was killed. His memory will live with me forever. A better individual does not exist.
