You Have Not Been Forgotten!

Dear SGT Martinez,

You Have Not Been Forgotten!

The Society of the Fifth Division, U.S. Army, during its 95th Annual Reunion in Pittsburgh, PA (Sept 10-14, 2015) , held a Reading of the Names Ceremony to honor the 514 Soldiers from the 5th Division that were Killed in Action during the War in Vietnam. Your Name Was Read Aloud Among Those Soldiers. You Have Not Been Forgotten! Rest in Peace, Dear Brother.

" I couldn't remember your face"

I was in Steve's squad, and vividly remember that he wanted to take point that day. Several of us were behind him but could'nt see him through the undergrowth.
There was an explosion, and the concussion caused us to fall. Sgt Presley and Sgt Rolle ran up to where the explosion happened and came back shortly with tears flowing down their cheeks. We wanted to see what was going on but they did not allow us to go see Steve. He was one of the first to fall in the 5th Mech. He was a wonderful soldier and fun to be around. I think of him often, even 46 years later. It was quite a shock for a bunch of 20 year olds. I would like to extend my sincere condolence to Steve's family.

Brothers Forever

My name is Tom Combs and I am comanager of a website for Bravo Bothers, a group of veterans of B Company 1/11 (5th Mech), which is the military unit Steve was with when he was killed in Vietnam. The group, Bravo Brothers, is dedicating a memorial plaque to the 41 members of our unit who were killed in Vietnam during the three years the unit was stationed there. We are making a memory book to keep with the memorial in an effort to further commemurate those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

If you have a picture of Steve in his military uniform or a photo from high school we would welcome a copy. Photos can be emailed or I can provide an address for someone needing to use snail mail. If you would like to write up a personal tribute to him, we would be glad to include it on his memorial page.

Bravo Brothers salutes this brave soldier and we will never forget him. He is our brother and will be in our hearts forever - may he rest in eternal peace.
