Thank You

Dear PFC Melvin Newlin, Thank you for your service as a Mortarman, and for receiving the Medal of Honor. 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.

I still remember you

Melvin was in my high school for a short time. Both of our names start with an N so we sat together in many classes. I got to know him a little in his brief attendance at East Palestine High School. He had such a difficult life, but he wanted people to remember him. He wanted to join the Marines after high school, go to Vietnam and like, Audie Murphy win all the combat medals. As a fellow classmate and Vietnam vet told me, "You can not tell who the heroes will be." Melvin you are my unlikely hero. Thank you for your service on this Veterans Day 52 years after your sacrifice.
