Skip was a true Hero.

Paul "Skip" Lawing was a true American Hero and so was his dog Sandbag. He died saving the lives of his team. He was also my cousin and I am very proud of him and I know that he and Sandbag are having fun in Heaven.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear SGT Paul Henderson Lawing Jr, sir



As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.



May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.



With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir



Curt Carter

From across the seas, in another time.

I never knew you; in fact, I'm not even American. I never met you; in fact, I was born nearly 30yrs after your passing. Yet I will never forget your story, your life, and your valour. You were the bravest of the brave, sacrificing everything to save those who now live today. You and my father served together - he considered you as one of his closest lifetime friends; he has never gotten over your death, less than two months after he came home from duty. Dad and I made a pilgrimage half way across the world to your resting place, and left an Australian flag at your grave, to remind Lincolnton NC that you are remembered 10,000 miles away. I can never let your memory fade, as my middle name is named in your honour. Rest in Peace Paul, for a part of me is always in Lincolnton and a part of you is in Australia.

Any information about Paul Henderson Lawing, Jr., Lincolnton, NC

I was Paul's (Paul Henderson Lawing, Lincolnton, NC 1-2-72/6-14-72) Cadet Company Commander at Georgia Military College (GMC) in the fall of 1969. Paul was my 1st Platoon Leader. After Christmas (1969) Paul returned to school and said he was leaving but did not know what he was going to do. The next time I saw Paul was December 1971 in Myrtle Beach, SC down at the Big Roller Coaster (Family Kindgom). The park had closed & he and several other members of his Special Forces group were enjoying a couple days of leave - they had just received their orders for VN. I had orders for VN in September 1972. We said we would look each other up. Never got the chance.
Does anyone know what Paul did after college, when he enlisted, how long he had been in or what happened the last day?
Paul was a great person, a wonderful friend, always had a smile & really enjoyed life. May God Bless him Always.
