AMERICAN HERO, we will never forget you or your sacrifice, REST IN PEACE


Having lost my brother Richard Friend in Viet Nam in 3/24/68 {he was also in 101 Airborne, and died in the same place Thua Thien you did, only a year before you that's SAD} I know the pain your family and friends feels. If it's of any peace to them remember this.

like you, are the reason we are free today! I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the sacrifices that you made! I hold you and those like you in the highest regard and you deserve nothing less! American's love you all, you were and always will be HEROES to me! I promise never to take for granted the freedoms I have, which you paid the ultimate price for!
Let no man be forgotten…I WILL REMEMBER YOU. God's Peace to you and your family. "REST IN PEACE HERO, REST IN PEACE".....................................Sgt. Robert Friend 1st. Inf. Div.

Remembering Red

Red was my RTO in the Fall,1969 in 1st Plt. D Co. 2/501st. We were always together and he was the best. I learned of his death many years after returning from RVN. I think of him often and pray for him. I remember him as a quiet,warm person but very dependable and an outstanding RTO. May God bless Red. 1-6.

To my Uncle John with Love and Thanks

I always have wished that I would have been able to meet you. You were killed in 1970 and I was not born until 1976. As a child I would go with my mother, Cindy (your sister) and my Grandma Keister (your mom) and plant flowers on your grave for Memorial Day. Since Grandma has passed, I continue to go with my mom and plant flowers and remember you and give thanks for your sacrifice. You gave up so much here for all of our freedom and safety. Being a mother myself, I can truly understand how hard it was for my family to have lost you. I will be eternally grateful and will never forget.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT John Loy Keister, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
