We Will Remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Ground Casualty

PFC Amedee G. Granelle Jr. was an infantryman serving with B Company, 2nd Battalion, 47th Infantry, 9th Infantry Division. PFC Granelle’s unit provided security at the Ben Luc float bridge on the Song Vam Co Dong (river) in Long An Province, RVN. The float bridge was installed in July 1968 after the original bridge was destroyed by the Viet Cong. The crossing was located on Route 4, the primary highway to Saigon from the Mekong Delta region. Keeping the bridge secure and open was a priority and security was maintained on the structure to protect it from another attack. Around midday on December 6, 1970, Granelle was part of the security detail when a concussion grenade was accidently detonated. Granelle was fatally injured in the blast.

Uncle Champ

I remember Uncle Champ. He was the "cool" uncle who really wasn't that much older than us. Many fun times and great memories together.
