Thank You

Dear Lt Eugene Moppert, Thank you for your service as an Infantry Unit Commander with the 1st Cavalry. The 53rd anniversary of the start of your tour just passed. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. It is Advent. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

A friend and a buddy "follow me"

I was a fellow classmate and friend of Gene's in 4th platoon "blackjack" company Infantry OCS Oct 66 / Apr 67. Although more than 1/2 a century ago I still remember him fondly. He was well liked and friendly. He and I were singing buddies. We harmonized well. "Norwegian Wood" by the Beatles was our favorite.
Gene was very dedicated to the Army and his country. The last I saw him was on graduation day as he was headed to LRRP (long range recon. patrol)at Ft Bragg NC. A very dangerous position to be in Vietnam.
Another OCS buddy ran into me in Korea in 1968 and told me of Gene's loss in Vietnam. Sad day for me. I still think of him occasionally. My condolences to family and friends. If family are interested I have OCS yearbook with his picture.

Memories of Gene

Gene, or Eugene, and I went to high school and shared many classes. In a way we were friendly "enemies" as we argued constantly. But his goodness always came through. The last I saw him was in the Quarter in New Orleans. He was with some buddies, and we chatted for a short while. He told me he was going to Nam and I wished him well.

Gene, the years have gone by and you are still in my thoughts. I thank you for your ultimate sacrifice and I hope that you are resting well in heaven.
