Thank you

You were taken the day I was born. As a daughter of a Vietnam Veteran, I say thank you. I was taught by my father to live every day worthy of the men who gave their lives so that we can live free. Thank you for your sacrifice.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Timothy William Gilkey, sir

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

Curt Carter

For LCPL. Timothy William GILKEY, USMC...another of Irwin's bravest of heroes, who gave his all!!!!!

He loved us so.
Every day, in a hundred ways, he told us so.
In honesty, inn affection, he told us so.
He loved us so.
Every day, in a hundred ways, he showed us so
With loyalty and bravery, he showed us so.
He was our defender, and he kept us free!
He took an oath to guard us, and fought for liberty!
He loved us so, and we should know.
For we loved him so.
LCPL Gilkey, you have given all that mortality could give! You have lived up to your credo of DUTY...HONOR...and COUNTRY!
I believe that Avonmore's own Jill Corey, whom I admire as one of my three top songbirds (along with Julie Andrews and Dusty Springfield), would be proud of your service. We all enjoy the freedoms we have to day because of your service to our nation, and your sacrifice. SEMPER FI!!!!!!!!!!
