Brother’s Squad Leader

Glenn Lucas was my brother’s (Gerald C Kinny) squad leader. He and Navy Corpsman Kirkham were incorrectly recorded as killed day after they actually were. They were killed moments before my brother in the same ambush on first day of Battle of Hue - 1/31/1968. Lucas was wounded and Corpsman Kirkham went to his aid and was killed as Lucas died. My brother then advanced a half a block with his machine gun to take out the enemy gunner who had killed them and had others wounded and pinned down not knowing where fire was coming from. My brother took out the enemy gunner in the tower over Citadel gate. He was killed as he ran back down the sidewalk. I know this story from first-hand witness and also the company Commanding Officer who retrieved my brother’s body. They were with Golf 2/5.

honoring you...

Remember to save for them a place inside of you, and save one backward glance when you are leaving, for the places they can no longer go...

High School friend and fellow Vietnam veteran

On this day 55 years ago we lost one heck of a soldier. We went to HS together and played a lot of basketball. After graduation we met again at the induction center on Whitehall street lower Manhattan, March 8, 1966. The draft needed Marines so Glenn volunteered. I stayed with the Army. I came back to the World before the Tet. I lost many friends from the old neighborhood but you Glenn hurt the most. I think of you often Glenn even after all this time. May you rest in peace warrior. Until we meet again.
