Distinguished Flying Cross Award
Remembering An American Hero
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
My brother, MY hero
He was my hero before he ever was in the military. He read the comics to me, sneaked away from Saturday morning work on the farm to watch cartoons with me, even took me on a couple of dates with his soon to be wife, Elaine. He was tenderhearted, kind, a tickler, always smiling and LOVED to go fast from cars to motorcycles to jets. MY hero,Bubba,as I called him, before he went MIA before his 25th birthday. Never forgotten.....
