CHARLES MANLEY MCGOVERN
To the greatest father I had
"I feel I know you?"
Remembering An American Hero
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
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.
