Thank you for your service

Thank you for you sacrifice and your service. I too learned of you while serving under the command of your brother LTC David Knack. During his Battalion Change of Command ceremony he discussed you and the loss that your family suffered. You would have been so proud of your brother and the man he became. He honored your memory and he brought me to tears during his speech.

A Life Not Lost In Vain

I did not know you, Lt. Knack. I was only 8 years old and living in Illinois when you were lost to the War, but I would later learn your name while serving in the Army under the command our your brother, Lt. Col. David J. Knack, if I recall correctly. Your brother, was one of my commanding officers while we served together in the 1st Infantry Division (Mechanized), the famous Big Red One, at Fort Riley, Kansas from 1994-96. I'm sure you were a daily inspiration to the colonel who was a fine example of an officer and a leader.

I view your name, Lt. Knack, whenever I visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, better known as The Wall, as my personal "Thank you" for your service and sacrifice, and out of respect to your brother, as well. You'll continue to be so honored, sir. In memory, a fellow Army vet.
