My Brother and Friend

I knew you as Chuck in the Nam. We were in the same platoon, and went on patrols together. We were in several fire fights together, covering each other's backs. I remember one fight in particular with several NVA. We were behind a couple trees and you yelled for me to cover you so you could get behind a downed tree to get a better shot. As you jumped your JOHN Wayne jump, I stepped from behind my tree and fired until you were behind that tree, shooting. After about 8 or 10 minutes, they disappeared back into the jungle. When we checked their position for any dead, all we found was lots of blood. I left the Nam a week before you were killed. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you and think if I had been there, you might still be with us today. God bless your soul Chuck. Randy Estes, Marmaduke, Ar.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL E G Mays Jr, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
