The Legacy

Major Johnson,
We never met, but I know of you through your sons. Scott and Tim were the new kids on the block when your family first moved into Pine Hills, but rest assured they grew up surrounded by friends. From school to scouts, our neighborhood did everything as an extended family. My only regret is that we don't see more of each other today.

I always had wondered about your fate, but never felt it was my place to ask about details. Reading about you on this site moved me to state that your sacrifice was not in vain; your sons grew up well. You would be very proud of them both today. We all strive to leave this world a better place...that you have done with Scott and Tim. They are your legacy.

Thank you !

As I ran towards the safety of your chopper from the edge of that rice paddy berm, I saw the fire as it erupted into a ball as well my dreams of a life to be evapoated amidst that bellowing smoke as your chopper set burning before me, I knew that you and your friends had volounteered to come to our aid while my brothers and I lie there trapped in that hell called war, when we looked up we could see the formation of helicopters descending toward us like a flock of angels frantically beating their wings, as you all swooped down to rescue us this day,on this kind mission of mercy to save us from the certain grasps that the grim-reaper held us in, as his sickle swung far and wide across the feral battle on that mournful day, July 19th, 1966. Thank you for your valiant love my brave brother.

Your New Family

Hello Raymond. I am your new daughter-in-law. Timothy showed me this site today after he hung our American Flag in your memory. Maggie purchased the flag that flew over the capitol on this day. I wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful family. Your son is my most precious gift, followed very closely by your new granddaughter. They are my everything. I know they all miss you terribly, as do I. But I know one day we will have the chance to make memories together, even if it is in a different time and place. We all keep you close to our hearts. We will come to visit your resting place in the near future. I look forward to bringing Tim there to meet you. Please keep watching. We love you.
