honoring you....

War drew us from our homeland
In the sunlit springtime of our youth.
Those who did not come back alive remain
in perpetual springtime -- forever young --
And a part of them is with us always.

I never met you, but I remember you

Pvt. Maxwell, We honored you in your hometown of Statesville when the traveling Vietnam wall came to town. I job before the wall arrived, was to locate the family members of all the Iredell County men who died in Vietnam. I found all the families but could not locate your mother. She had moved to Winston Salem. So my friend, Pat Steward said she would be your family for the ceremony. And she stood when your name was called. I cried. Pat and I went to your grave in Belmont Cemetery and took flowers. Pat put your photo on her mantle along with her tow daughters' photos. I served with Charlie Company, 3/23rd Infantry, 2nd Infantry Division at the Korean DMZ in 1968 & 1969. I salute you my brother. David Benbow, Statesville, NC

Hello Henry, I'm Back

Henry, I don't go a week or two without thinking of you. You were so happy to be in the Army when I met you at Ft. Bragg in May 1967. Our paths to Vietnam took a different way, you had already been killed by the time I was "in-country". it is such a shame that you didn't get to enjoy life the way it is now. Every time I pass through the Statesville area, I get a lump in my throat. I hope your relatives read this and know that he had an impact. Mark

My Bunk Mate, Ft Bragg Basic Training

Through the power of the Internet, just learned that Henry Died Feb 1, 1968. And here it is 52+ years later. Sorry to find out, always thought he would enjoy the Army. He always remarked about the good food (3 hots and a cot). Rest in Peace Henry, you were a really nice person.
