You are not forgotten

I was at the cemetery today to clean my fathers headstone
And on my way out I passed a military headstone that was covered with leaves and dirt
I stopped to read what was visible and then decided to get out the bucket and clean off your headstone
As I cleaned it off it became clear to me that you were awarded the Purple Heart and has died in action. I looked up your name and saw that you were from Englewood which is nearby to my hometown in Cresskill.

I felt the need to say a prayer for you as it appeared that your grave had not been visited in a while
I left your headstone clean and cleared of debris as that was the least I could do for you

I thank you for your commitment to our country and I will always remember to say a prayer for you.
I will always keep your grave in good standing
God Bless you.

Cresskill, NJ

Jerry Menter was a good and great friend

Jerry Menter and I attended Hospital Corps School together at Grand Lakes Naval Training Center in 1968. He was one of my closest friends. He was a striker, he volunteered for Corps School, he wanted so badly to be a Corpsman and God knows he was a good one. I was devastated when I found out Jerry, I still am. I miss you terribly old friend, I have never forgotten you, you will always live within me. love you brother.

For only a short time

We left Bethesda together and schooled at Camp Pendleton in Field medicine, then shipped to Vietnam. I volunteered for Recon and you were assigned a unit. I remember your words as we parted and two weeks later you were gone. All too short a time. I think of you often and wish you were here!
