Thank You

Dear PFC William Nelms, Thank you for your service as a Radio Telegraph Operator. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. It’s a New Year, but not necessarily better. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

REST IN PEACE

Bill Nelms & I grew up together, and were closer than brothers. upon graduation in 1968, Bill enlisted into the Marine Corps, and myself---the Army. I was in Vietnam (101st Abn Div) when I received mail one day, out in the boonies, and his obituary was in a letter from my dad!

I was so young when you went away, but I still have fond memories of you as my big brother. I still have all your metals and cherish them. The ultimate sacrifice you gave, I am forever grateful to call you my brother. Right now mom and dad are with you and one day we will all be reunited. Love to you big brother from your little sister Janice.
