MICHAEL L HOLIDAY
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
WE love and miss you
I would ride to Mackenzie High School with Mike and Ron P. Mike had a Ford convertible. It was a beautiful car. Mike had a pool table in his basement and I enjoyed playing pool with him.
Mike’s nick name was Doc for Doc Holiday.
I lived about 3 blocks from Mike. Mike was an only child. He enjoyed Ice skating. Mike had an outgoing personality. Unlike me, he had a way with women, with a gift to gab. We had a lot of fun in those years. I joined the Air force in 1963 and got out in 1967. I had no idea Mike was in the Army until I received a call regarding his funeral in 68. It was closed casket with his photo. Some at the funeral were totally opposed to the War. I was proud of Mike for serving his country. He gave the ultimate sacrifice for his country. Mike, we love you and miss you. Russell Scott
