My Hero as a teen

Amazing to see this memorial now, when I am nearly 67 years old! I word a bracelet for 1st Lieutenant Arthur Hardy that I sent for in 1973 during my Senior year of High School (James Monroe HS, Portland, Oregon.
I had no idea until today how young and handsome he was! I would have blushed terribly, for I was quite shy.
I prayed for him and any family every day until I discovered his remains were found and returned for burial.
He was my hero!
A terrible war. As an RN, I worked with another officer also bearing the first name Arthur. I’m not aware of his designation, yet have heard that he aided in air lifting war orphans out of Vietnam.
Brave, courageous men, these Arthurs!
Our freedom was bought by them.

Memorial Day 2021

This year, as every year for many, my wife finishes the wreaths she makes for every Memorial Day and our American flag is raised in remembrance, as we observe this somber national holiday. You and our loved ones whose names also are inscribed on the Vietnam Memorial are in our hearts. My family and I will never forget the cost of our freedoms, and the men and women who have and continue to step forward to keep America safe.
With respect, always.
