"I feel I know you?"

Charles, I am the caretaker of the Monterey County Vietnam Memorial. It is there where I met your wife Resi. She attends every Memorial Day event, and every week she puts new flowers near your name on our Wall. She is really quite a lady, and she is truly devoted to you (with her love) even to this day. She always gives me a hug, I in turn, make sure the Memorial site is always looking great all year long. It is not a place to forget someone, it is a place to remember those that didn't make it home from a place called Vietnam. I was drafted in 1968, was seriously wounded in 1969, so I got to be partake in all of the aspects of combat and a first hand view of the great doctors and nurses that put me back together again. Resi is a big part of our Memorial. She lost a very special person in her life, and she still remembers you as though it was yesterday. Time truly doesn't heal everything, love stays with many till the day they pass from this life. She has dedicated her life to preserving your memory. I wish I could have met you, through her I almost think I do know you. From a combat soldier, 9th Infantry division, Sept.68-May 17,1969.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Charles Manley McGovern, 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

We met you in Oklahoma

We met Mac in 1960 at Ft Sill, OK, he was in same Company as my Husband Junior J Jenkins. I was 22 years old and Mac and Junior were 24. Mac visited us at our home on weekends, we had a lot of great times. We left OK in 1962,we wnt to Chattanooga, TN Mac went to Germany for three years & exchanged several letters. We took many photos of us and Mac, I have many of Mac and would love to share them with his son & Family. Mac was a stand up guy and great person. I am very happy he found love and happiness but am so sad that Mac didn't get to meet his son and had to leave a wife and family behind. If you like, contact me, please send your name and phone number and I will look for it and call you as as soon as I get the information. Junio passed away from cancer on May 12, 1985 and I am living in Thronton, CO. All my love, Billie.
