In honor of a hero and old friend


Pat,
Our early years of childhood was spent living across the street from one another in Ashley on Mary Street. Remember the swing on your front porch where one of your family members would push us so high that we could touch the ceiling. Big thrill for little boys. We snuck under your front porch you had a large pin. We punctured our fingers and rubbed our blood together to become blood brothers. You were always a great friend and I missed you when you moved to Sugar Notch. It was always a pleasure to bump into you in the years before we joined the service (different branches). I was serving over seas when my Family informed me that you had been killed in Vietnam. There is no doubt of your heroism. You were always the kind of a guy that would do anything to protect his buddies.

I have a plaque on my Mantel that has the following passage from The Rev Dennis Edwards, Chaplin USMC that applies to all the heroes like you.

It is the solider, not the reporter that has given us the freedom of the press.

It is the solider, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the solider, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the solider, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag who allows the protester to burn the flag.

I salute you my old friend for your uncommon valor and bravery.

Chaz Mangan
