Husband of my cousin, Sandra Lord

When Arthur was stationed in New Jersey he and his wife, my cousin Sandra, used to visit my family near Atlantic City. I remember them sitting on the living room couch as he talked about the war. He was quiet young man, a professional soldier, who said he was ready to do whatever was required. He died leaving a wife and children. His helicopter went down over the N. V. border, and no one was allowed to search for the remains for more than twenty years. My cousin went to Paris more than once seeking permission. Arthur was an exemplary man who gave his life willingly.

High School Classmate

Arthur sat behind me in 12-6 home room and English. I knew of his death from the memorial in Savannah. The first time I saw it he was still listed as MIA. I then remember reading that his remains were found. Last week week visited our daughter in Washington, DC and visited the memorial wall. It brought back Arthur’s memory.
We left Savannah for college and a career that took us to many places around the country so I lost touch. Ironically, my daughter is Susan Elizabeth. She married an F15E pilot in the USAF and he is now a General and still in the service.
I am now retired and living in Atlanta.
Arthur signed my Jenkins H. S. Annual, “To the 2nd most handsome boy in our class from the most handsome.”

Thank You

Dear Maj. Arthur Lord, Thank you for your service as a Ranger Qualified Rotary Wing Aviation Unit Commander - Helicopter Pilot with the 1st Cavalry. I researched you on your 52nd anniversary, sad. I am glad you were identified in 2001. Welcome home. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. The 45th anniversary of the Fall of Saigon just passed, and it is still sad. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Bracelet

I began wearing a bracelet in your honor in 1987. I wore it every day even after your remains were interred. I wore it because you became a part of me. My heart, my patriotism, began with you. I pray your soul is at peace and may God continue to pour out his grace upon your family. Stacy Conley, Savannah GA
