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
I miss you Uncle Arnie!
Though we never were able to meet I know that you were an amazing Man. I used to love reading the letters you wrote to grandma and you would call her your number 1 girl, and I cant help but think though tears may have filled her eyes she always looked at you with pride and love!!And I know that I do to!! I love you uncle Arnie and look forward to the day we all meet in Heaven! Until then God Speed!! I Love you!
My Brother and I were both born in the Netherlands, and in 1958, my Mom and Dad decided to move to America, the land of Freedom and opportunity, we quickly adopted the U.S.A as our nation of choice, and we loved it very much, I know that my Brother didn't die in Viet Nam in vain, but rather because he was willing to sacrifice himself so that we can all be free. Now when I hear our nations anthem, and the last line says The Land of the free, and the Home of the Brave.is because of men and women like my Brother Arnie. Love you and Miss you Bro.
