He was my Brother

My little brother and I grew up on a ranch outside Billings, Montana. Went to grammar school at Blue Creek country school, later went to middle school in Billings and attended Billings West High school.

Gerald (Jerry) went to the job corps for a year, and came home to help on the ranch. He was drafted into the service in 1968, did his boot camp in Ft. Lewis, came home for a short time. In November 1968 he married his high school sweetheart, they had a week together and he was off to Vietnam. They had ten days in October 1969 together in Hawaii for his R & R. He went back to Vietnam and was a mechanic and rode on helicopters. On October 29, 1969 just five days after his 21st birthday, he was shot down and expired. He was brought home to a full military burial in Custer Battlefield on Dec. 10, 1969. We as his family received about fifteen medals in a ceremony at the local armory in 1970. It was a huge story in the Billings Gazette. I miss you, your Sister Carol

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP5 Gerald Thomas Greeno Jr, 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

Angel Day

On this your angel day I humbly give thanks for your service and sacrifice and with honor I leave you this poem . . .

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.
