My Cousin

Larry Adams was my cousin. At age six I told Larry that I did not want him to leave. I cried and cried. He promised me that he would return home.
My heart sank when I heard about his death. My mother took us to his funeral and when I saw Larry I knew he was at peace.

I will never forget him.

Thank You

I am a high school senior at Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois. My teacher was a Vietnam War Veteran and showed all of his classes this website and wanted to broaden our horizons and give to us an assignment to recognize these amazing men/women who so unselfishly gave up their lives and fought for their country in a time of need. I thank you form the bottom of my heart for your bravery. You are all greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your bravery!

I am a student at Gridley High School, working on a Posting Project, and I just want to tell you that I am proud of what you have done for the U.S. It really takes some heart to do what you have done. And if I could, I would like to tell you this in person. Well thank you so very much.
