Brother in Arms

I served with Bill in Germany before going to Vietnam. We were young officers together- Bill was my senior by a few months. We shared in some exciting and strenuous training events in Europe but my best memory of Bill is of him using my apartment to wrap Christmas presents for his family.

My father

Sadly, I was only two when Bill, my father, was killed in Vietnam, and my brother was only about 6 months old. But I have some memories of him. Those memories all include a sense of love and well-being. I remember him holding me and playing with me, and I especially remember being at a table in my grandparents' home with what I recall as a large plate of doughnuts in the center. Bill reached for one and let me take a big bite, laughing the whole time. And I remember the day my mother opened the door of our apartment to see a uniformed man standing there and the desolate sound she made at the sight. It took decades before my grandparents or my mother could talk to me about him and who he was. But one memorable summer, I found a whole drawer of things of his and about him in my grandmother's office, and she let me spend as much time as I wanted going through it. I learned so much about him and came to know something of his personality. I have since seen so many of those same traits in my brother -- good-natured friendliness and welcome to everyone, willingness to try things, artistic eye, ready laugh, the way people respect him, and so much more. It is true that people live on in their children, and I still hold close that sense of love that came with all my young memories of him.
