honoring you...

Thank you for your service to our country so long ago sir. While all deaths in Vietnam are tragic that you died just two days before your 24th birthday is especially so. May you rest in eternal peace.

Thank You

Dear Lt Duane Landwehr, Thank you for your service as an Infantry Unit Commander. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. For many of us, we have begun Lent. The time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

I knew you for only a short time in 1967 but will never forget you.

Today I discovered your name on the Vietnam Memorial Wall and am so sorry to find your name there. You were my basic training instructor in May and June of 1967 at Ft. Knox Kentucky. You taught us all well and gave me the skills I needed to survive Vietnam and every day since. The last time I saw you was a chance meeting near the PX for the First Infantry Division base in Di An, Vietnam. You seemed eager to get things moving and wished me luck. Although this remembrance is way too belated, I offer my sincerest condolences to your family and friends. Thank you for your service to our country, you will not be forgotten.

Sir, You Are Not forgotten

2LT Duane Landwehr was my BCT Drill Instructor as a SGT E-5 at Ft Knox in 1967. He was a good man and taught us well. He always exhibited exemplary military bearing and I had a lot of respect for him. I remember seeing him sleeping on a cot in his office in the "Attention" position, something I have never forgotten. I have thought of him many times over the years and wondered what had become of him. I just did an online search for him by chance and am saddened to see that he died in service to our Country.

The Lord Jesus said "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends". 2LT Landwehr did exactly that.

Sir, I salute you and hope to salute you in person some day, shake your hand, and give you a great big hug. Well done, Sir!
