My other big brother

I remember Ken when he came to our house with my older brother Gary, and Hang out all the time. We were a Navy family, so my older brother enlisted in the Navy. My dad was still in as a reservist. But Ken enlisted in the Army, knowing he would be shipped out. That was the last I saw of him. He will always be my other big brother.

Ground Casualty

SP4 Larry K. Leimbach was an Armor Crewman serving with L Troop, 3rd Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, U.S. Army Republic of Vietnam. On August 15, 1970, Leimbach was at Fire Support Base Bandit II, nine kilometers (5.4 miles) north of Tan Yuen in Bien Hoa Province, RVN. At approximately 5:30 PM, Leimbach was handling a .38 caliber revolver when it accidentally fired. The errant round entered his chest and abdomen, critically injuring him. Emergency responders quickly reacted and Leimbach was flown to the 24th Evacuation Hospital at Long Binh where he was admitted within twenty minutes of being wounded. Life-saving measures were applied by medical staff; however, Leimbach’s condition deteriorated over the ensuing days, and his status was downgraded twice. He died of hepato-renal (kidney) failure at 1:35 PM on August 23, 1970. The holder of a Bronze Star for valor during his nine months of service in Vietnam, a memorial service was held in Leimbach’s honor on August 27th conducted by the regimental chaplain and attended by members of L Troop.

The love of a big brother never leaves

Larry, I have never been good with words. So I don't normally do this kind of thing. you were only 17 when you enlisted, dad signed for you against moms wishes. You were only 18 when you will killed,, Worse day of my life. My God my grandchildren are older then that. You were brave to join at such a young age. I watched our family being torn apart.. So much pain at that time and I carried it with me for yrs. You were a great brother, fights and all,,,, I know you are now up there with our parents and sister. Thank you for all you did as a brother and what you gave up for this country. You wouldn't recognize it now. So much hate, sometimes I feel that you and every vet before and after, died for nothing, I know in my heart that is not true. Our country will come back,, I know this sounds more like a letter, but I have no family left and I needed to do this before I pass, I wish you were still here,, I know I will see you again.. I love you so much,, You little sis,,,, Neina
