Honoring your memory

Troy and I were friends from the small Ky. County we grew up in. Many good times were had by all at the Hiway 55 drive in theatre in Shelby Co. Troy gave his life for this country the same month and year I arrived in Nam. May you Rest In Peace brother. Thank you for your service.

I remember you.

Although I was several years younger, I remember Troy. My mother worked at the high school, so I knew a lot of the "older kids" through her.

One day I was visiting a friend's home in New Castle when Troy drove by. My friend, who was Troy's age, yelled at Troy's car as it went by. Troy turned around and came back to chat for a few minutes while us boys stood around listening to him talk about leaving for Vietnam in a few days.

Just before Troy got into his car to drive off my friend shook Tory's hand and told him, "Be safe over there." Troy replied, "Don't worry about me. I'll be okay."

I offer thanks and gratitude for his service and his sacrifice for our country. He might not have known who I was, but I'll never forget him nor that day.

Very Respectfully
