Remember my Friend

In memory of my good friend Charlie ‘Murf’ Leonard. We served together in D Troop 1/10 Cavalry, AERO Rifle, 4th Infantry Division. He was within a couple weeks of going back to the world when we went out on a rescue mission and walked into an ambush. Charlie was hit in the chest and it was over in an instant. It was a very sad day.

We had some good times together in an awful place. When they told us to do some physical training on the days that we weren’t out in the field a lot of the guys played softball. But Murf didn’t like to play ball so we lifted weights. He also liked to raid the mess tent at night. We weren’t hungry, it was just something to do. So Murf would say, lets go get this or that and off we’d go to sneak into the tent.

He will always be remembered by not only by me but also my family. My grandson made a rubbing of his name when they visited The Wall. Charlie Murf Leonard was one of the good guys who should have made it back. But his name is on the wall with all the others who ‘should have’ made it back. May God’s love grant him eternal life.

A Thank You

Just a word of thanks to the family of Charlie Leonard from another Leonard, John D. Leonard. I didn't go to Vietnam but served during that time. My Guard unit would be placed in downtown DC whenever a demonstration was held. We were expected to keep law and order. Believe me, we sometimes had to police our own ranks the tensions and emotions would be so high toward "peaceful demonstrators". Because of people like Charlie,who made the utlimate sacrifice for his country with his life, we enjoy freedoms in this land that allow free expression and speach and for that scarifice he made, I am one who is thankful. And to his family, I express my belated sympathies and a promise to never forget Charlie Leonard. Leonards are known for standing tall and proud with their service. My dad did 31 years of military service, in WWII, Korea and Vietnam, my two brothers were in service over 25 years and both served in Vietnam. Couple this with Charlie's service along with the other 24 Leonards found on the "Wall" and it proves the point. Leonards are something to be proud of!
