Always Remembered - Always Grateful

Doug was two years older than me in high school. He was in my brother and sister's class. I remember him bagging groceries at Tarpy's and always having a smile and kind words for this underclassman. Life comes full circle, I live on Doug's street and teach at the junior high we both attended. Each year when the 8th graders visit DC I take my group to The Wall and tell them about Doug.
Doug you'll always be remembered and I am always grateful to you.

My brother

My best friend Debbie (who, ironically, died at 14 while Doug was in Viet Nam) had such a crush on him and he would give her rides on the back of his motorcycle just to give her a thrill. He never treated us like inconsequential kids. He spent time with us and always treated us well. He could talk like Donald Duck, he was artistic, he loved nature (esp. dogs), and he used to sing that song "Bottle of wine, fruit of the vine, when you gonna let me get sober....." I remember fishing with him and Gramp, and lying in the grass looking at shapes in the clouds.
I loved him and I always will. I'll never forget him.

thank you from a grateful nation

I am a police officer that works in the area of Union Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio. I have started a project, well actually a special interest in making sure that all of the Veteran's graves have American flags on them. I want to assure the family of Douglas Wanner Barnitz that as long as I work in the area of Union Cemetery, there will always be an American flag posted on his grave. He and all the other Veterans deserve at least that much! Semper Fi Marine.
