Reunion

Hey Doug,
Just thought you would like to know, as if you don't already, our 50 year class reunion is coming up and you are not forgotten. I know you will be there. It doesn't seem that it was that long ago. It also doesn't seem that you left this world in 69 to be with our Lord. I was there also, only on a ship cruising the Sea of Japan and South China Sea at the time of your departure. Take care "brother" and looking forward to meeting you again in that big military station in the sky.

THANK YOU

Dear Sarah Lynch,
Hello. I have seen that your uncle / family member is Douglas Wanner Barnitz, a fellow veteran. Also, that he has fought in the Vietnam War. I am a fellow eighth grader that went to Washington D.C. and has seen the Vietnam memorial. While at the memorial I have seen Douglas W. Barnitz on it. You are getting this letter to be informed that many people have seen his name and are thankful, I just wanted someone, like a relative, to acknowledge that.
I want you to know he will always be remembered by many people, besides family members. He is also very much respected for what he has done. I am very sorry to mention that he is no longer with us. However I and many other people are still thankful for him and his service.
He must have been a great guy and very thoughtful too. There are many people that not only remember him, but remember memories with him. I have read many of those memories and they all seem like events that will never be forgotten. Besides that, if you are still in contact with his sister, Sandy, please tell her that I am moved by how she never forgets his birthday and is always sending a remembrance on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund.
Overall, you and your family must be extremely proud. Also, I thank him one last time. There are really no words to describe how appreciated I am that there was someone like him that has served for our country.

Sincerely,
Shelly S.
