Never Forgotten

Tom; We were best friends in high school and I remember our many good laughs, especially in Mr. Berg's typing class. Seems like you, me and Doug were always getting trouble for talking and creating our bit of mayhem and how he passed us is still a mystery. I wish you were still here as our 50th high school reunion is coming up in 2 years and I sure would like to share old times and memories. Doug passed away from Agent Orange 10 years ago and he is also sorely missed. You and 58,000 other brave men and women died way too young. You gave the ultimate sacrifice for your comrades in arms and for our great country. I look up your name when I see the Wall and break down in tears every time. I miss you good friend.
