THE COUSIN I NEVER KNEW

I'm Bob Hoover, I wrote the note on the back of the letter I've posted. I found it when going through my mothers estate.

I was 14 years old when my Grandmother Mellinger Hoover called her son, my father Harold, to give him the news. Grandmas sister, Melvia Mellinger, married Perry Howard who would have been Glens grandfather. His father was Fred.
That's a long winded explanation of the descrepincy in the name I hurriedly jotted down on the closest piece of paper I could find on the kitchen table. Grandma still had a party phone line , so for her to call us was a really big deal.

I never knew my cousin Glen. I was shocked when doing genealogical research that this site turned up on a google search of Glen Eugene Howard. At first I was ecstatic to have pictures of Glen. And reading the messages from people who served with him and relatives who miss him and the life he never lived.
Then I remembered my note on his death....

Four years after Glens death I enlisted in the Marine Corps, like my father had before me. While I'm a Viet-Nam Era Veteran, I was never in country.

Maybe one day I'll be able to visit the wall and 'touch' Glen....

I'm the one next to Glen in the picture. We were good friends. Terrible mistake that he died. I helped put him in the body bag. Time does not heal all wounds.
