His Goodbye

I was twelve when we lost Glen. He was ten years older than me. I can vaglly remember him growing up. But I do believe he came to me when he passed. I remember out of the blue Glen popped into my mind for some reason I could not stop thinking about him. I didn't give it much thought at the time at t hat age I had a lot going on. Three days later my father came to picked me up at school after having finished basketball practice. When I got in the car he looked at me and said I have something to tell you. Before he could say another word I said Glen's dead. At that moment I knew why I thought about him when I did. He came to say goodbye. I still remember that part of my life like it was yeasterday.

Cousin and special friend, too.

Cuz, you don't know how I've missed you these past 48 years. I remember you ns the truly loving , crazy young man you were. I wish we could have grown old together. I thank you for coming to me in my dream the night you were killed to say good -bye. I remember it so clearly, even now. You would have been a great asset to this old world, but at least you don't have to see the ugliness that this world has become. Love you cuz, miss you, Will see you soon.

SK3 Glen Howard

I served with Glen aboard the YRBM-16 as a follow SK3. Glen was part of us group of close SKs. He was always smiling and friendly and popular with he crew. He came in-country to the YRBM after me and I left about July 20, 1969. Glen always pitched in to do his share of the work and even worked on the beer barge! I had the honor of visiting his family a number of years ago in Woodland when his mother was still alive and she still missed him as does his brothers and sisters. Sister Glenda visited me in Maine and in turn I visited his family in Illinois. I will share my Vietnam photos with the family. Now looking for guys who served on the YRBM.
