Thank You

Dear Sp4 Allen Keating, Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. I did the research on him on his 50th anniversary. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Veterans’ Day is next week. The time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Remembering you Allen

Allen each year I go home to Cohasset to march in the Memorial Day parade as a Viet Nam Veteran I think of you. You see, I joined the Army as a nurse right out of MGH nursing school because you had to go - and what could be of more purpose than to care for those like you who had to go to war. Your friendship growing up in Cohasset was special to me and will always be remembered.

Remembering Allen

Remembering Allen
I was at the Wall this evening and I looked for your name on Panel 17W - Line 91. I never knew you but I was friends with your younger brother Gus and knew your Dad. A great family. Thank you for your service and bravery Allen. I lived across from the Cohasset Central Cemetary and would often stop by your final resting place and say a few words. My parents , both WWII veterans are just about 75 yards from you. Thank you.

The Best of the Best

As we grew up together, played sports together, and loved life together….you were always my hero. When I came back from Vietnam I found out you were hit just a few miles from me in Pleiku. How could that be…why should I get to go home and you not be there when I did. I think about that a lot.
I have a tribute on my Harley with your name and dates. It took me over forty years to feel ok about being a Vietnam Vet. With your name on my bike I ride proud. So proud to have been your friend, so proud of you. Miss you.
