You Are Not Forgotten

Gary, you have been a part of my life since April, 1967 when I arrived in Vietnam & was assigned to C-1-7, First Cavalry Division. I didn't know you long, but as infantrymen we formed friendships quickly. You & several others were like older brother to me, the new guy, & through your actions & conduct, showed me, regardless of my training, how to be a "real" infantryman. Thank you for that.
The day you died we were going down a trail & joking about what we were going to do when we finished our tour in Vietnam. We didn't realize that everything was going to change before the day was out. A few hours later you were dead and I, only a few yards from you, was unscathed. We got the wounded to safety & carried you to a chopper on a poncho. It was one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. I've carried the sad memory of that day with me ever since. I was nineteen then & I'm seventy six now. As long as I live you will not be forgotten.
I wish our acquaintance had not been so brief. Garry Owen, sir.

honoring you...

Thank you for your service to our country so long ago sir. While all deaths in Vietnam are tragic that you just seven days before your 23rd died birthday is especially so. May you rest in eternal peace.
