honoring you....

There is a place
Not far from here
Where spirits walk
And heroes live
And honor still resides.

It is a wall
With names inscribed
Of those who served
When they were asked...
The brothers of my youth.

I go there still
To walk and think
About my life,
And what I've done since
And things that might have been.

There is a debt
I can't repay
Too many lives were spent.
And one man's life cannot suffice
To make their deaths worthwhile.

But there is hope
In the memory
Of those we leave behind
Who know the price that freedom brings
Who can carry on in kind.

I send you now
To touch a name
So the vision can be passed
Remember there is honor still
It is for you to see it lasts.

They are not dead
And have a wish
As all old soldiers do
The reflection you see before you now
Is their wish to live in you.

Melendrez family of Whittier, Calif., and Silver City, N.M.

Robert (Bobby) Charles was a cousin I never really knew as I was only 19 months old when he died. His brother Andrew Martin Melendrez was killed just two years later, on June 3, 1969, aboard the U.S.S. Frank E. Evans when the destroyer was struck by the Australian carrier HMAS Melbourne as the two ships headed toward Thailand as part of "Operation Sea Spirit." One of the earliest memories I have as a child was of our family's grief upon learning of the loss of Andrew.

Robert and Andrew had family primarily in Whittier, Calif., and Silver City, N.M.

Thank you, Robert and Andrew, for your service and sacrifice.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Robert Charles Melendrez, 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
