We Remember, and tell those who never knew you.

I always think of Monty on Memorial Day. He was a good High School buddy to my brother, Roger Mittan. Thank you to his family. I think about how this man’s life was cut short… for me, for us, for his country. I wish that we all would show our gratitude for this one to each other.

honoring you...

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.

Thank You

Dear Sgt Monty Lackas, Thank you for your service as an Infantryman with the 1st Cavalry. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. The time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Basic Training

Went through boot camp in Ft. Lewis, Washington in the summer of 1968 with Monty. He and I were bunkmates in the barracks. I signed up for schooling in the signal corps but he didn't want to. He said "I'm afraid I'll get put in the Infantry, sent to Vietnam and get killed". I went on to Georgia and he stayed back in Ft. Lewis for advanced Infantry training. His greatest fears materialized as I was informed of his death that next summer. Always wanted to meet his wife. Maybe that will happen.

Remembering SGT Lackas of Nebraska

The late SGT Lackas is the first Vietnam War casualty I've seen anywhere who lived in Nebraska. He will be always remembered on Face Book, here at the VVMF and other sites, I'm sure. Thank you for your service and sacrifice, SGT Lackas! Rest Well with the Lord.
