Remembering An American Hero
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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
friends from Iona Prep and Villanova
Jerry...I think of you often. We rode the Stanford Local from Larchmont to New Rochelle, trying to keep one car ahead of the conductor. I remember reading about the first battles in the Vietnam War in the New York Times on that train with you. Your early death will always be a source of pain for me. You were a gentle, charming soul. I miss you.
