Quite and Brave

We just had our 40th class reunion. The Traip Academy class of 1965. I made a special remembrance board for the classmates that have left us. There was a picture of you from the yearbook, a picture of your name on the Vietnam Wall and an actual rubbing from the wall. We are so sorry you could not be there in person. You were there however in our hearts.

Uncle Freddy

For my Uncle Freddy:

You were my guardian angel while you were here on earth and my guardian angel now as you watch over us all from heaven. You are missed so much Uncle Freddy.

I am so blessed to have had you in my life. You may not be here on earth but you live within the hearts of so many people that you touched in the short time you had.

I love you Uncle Freddy - my uncle, my friend, my hero.

You were my Gunner and my right hand!

Freddy A. McGee! We all called you McGee, after all it is such a cool name. I remember the day when I came to the first platoon as your platoon leader. There was you, Murchinson and Record, all E-5's and really way too much rank for one tank, I thought. But God! What a proficient crew the three of you were! And you were the best, no doubt. You taught me a lot as I recall. And as clever as you were, you quickly learned my personality, my methods and my quirks. The gunner of the platoon leader's tank has to be really sharp and in no time, you learned to think and react just like me, maybe even better than me. There were many times I'd be away from the tank and something would happen and you'd cover for me and no one knew the difference. I completely trusted you in every respect and especially in a firefight. You were a fierce warrior and I cannot think of anyone better. We made a fine a tank crew as there ever was, didn't we? Remember the time you came to me and said, "Lt. Coleman, I've been talking to Record and Murchinson. Sir, we all are getting short, including you, you know. Sir, we always ride point and perhaps it is time you let another tank ride up there." And I aswered that I would always ride point as I felt that was where I could best lead the platoon. But, if the three of you wanted a safer position behind point, I'd be happy to transfer you to other tanks, absolutely no hard feelings. You all stayed and I was glad! You were very brave and you made my duties as platoon leader there much easier. I sincerely appreciate your dedication, effort and bravery and the times you covered for me. America has not produced a finer man that you, ever, in my opinion. Remember Butch? His favorite expression was mumbajumba! He took it really hard when you got killed. He tried in vain to grab you as you were thrown off the tank and I am sure wherever he is, he remembers that last look the two of you shared.

Andy, I carry your name and the date you were killed with me in my wallet wherever I go. And I will carry your splendid memory with me into the next life where I'd like to see you again. Damn, it was a shame you were killed. I honor you old friend. Thank you for being way more than just my gunner and right hand.
