My Company Commander

You were always there for me, keeping us alive in a time were death walked hand and hand with us. I still have a live picture from the real wall in DC of your name in my scrap book. I seen the photos of your wife and child in Texas. I will never forget you and will take your memory to my grave. God bless your family wherever they may be.

Thank You

I heard about your ultimate sacrifice on the radio while on my way home from work at Nichols Industry. Thank you for protecting our country. I have viewed your name on the Vietnam Wall Memorial in Washington, D.C., as well as the one in Jacksonville, along with other Cherokee County soldiers that lost their lives. Amoung them was my brother, Roy Nolley.

CPT Barber

I was Linc's Tng Ofcr for 3 tng cycles in A-16-4 USATCA Ft. Knox. Linc volunteered for Viet Nam after a year in command. He applied for a RA commission and planned to be a career officer. He was a superior officer who knew how to command and how to develop a new officer under his command. I followed him in command of A-16-4 due to his encouragement, support and recommendation. He had been in country one month when his APC hit a land mine. All who knew him were in shock at his loss. I will always remember him. He was a fine officer, loving husband and father, and a good friend.

Bink

Bink was my oldest American cousin. It was always exciting to visit the Jacksonville Barbers. He came to visit us in 1953, when he was 10 and I was 7, and taught me to ride a bike. We had to walk down into the town to get the tire pumped up, which was an adventure in itself.
