REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR LEE ROY NOLLEY

I remember Lee Roy Nolley

Lee Roy was a tiny little boy when we were growing up in East Texas.

My fondest remembrance of him was to see him toddling up the dirt road, to our Granddaddy King’s house. ( His mother, Cara, was a King before she married. She and my father, Virdie King were brother and sister )

My cousin, Lee Roy, was a pleasant child and very soft spoken.

We grew up in the country where most of our neighbors were also uncles, aunts, cousins and of course, our grandparents. It was a safe and secure environment for all of us.

When we heard of Lee Roy’s death, a feeling of grief and shock was felt by everyone in the family and in our community.

This was followed by surprise when the family learned Lee Roy had made all the arrangements for his funeral, before leaving the States. He must have known what destiny held ahead for him.

We were/ARE all proud of Lee Roy, who was too young to die,
as they ALL were.

Roy Nolley

Roy, you were one of the kindest human beings I have ever known. Having you as my brother in law was a true blessing. Your smile was contageous. Your innocence sweet. Your love for all living things tremendous. I thank God for having known you. Tamara was conceived the week of your funeral. She's 32 now and just the other day I read something she'd written. The form asked who would you most like to spend a day with. She chose you, stating she wished she'd known you. Instead, the Lord took you. John's kind words of comfort meant so much to me to hear that you were at peace, knowing the Lord was with you. At this moment I am silently crying, tears streaming down my face, remembering you. I'm glad you are in my life. My son, Jeremy, is now serving in the Marine Corps. I pray for his safety daily, but know that all who serve our country put their lives on the line for the freedom of all Americans. I'm as proud of him as your mother was of you. Serving America in the military is a noble cause. Bless you.

I have posted these pictures especially for relatives and friends of PFC Lee Roy Nolley, so they may see what Vietnam looked like and where he lived, from November 1968 to April 1969. He was a great guy, my best friend there and will be remembered always.

Lai Khe - Company D HQ, 1st Infantry Battalion, 28th Regiment, home of the "Black Lions"

This photo shows the modest quarters of our "rear" area. Very few people actually lived here, as most of us were either working missions out from remote firebase camps or staying out in the "bush" along woodlines and trails. We would occasionally get to "stand down" in the rear and have showers, mess hall food or steak BBQ. The cooks would prepare food here and sometimes we would have a hot meal sent out, instead of C-rations. The rubber trees are typical of those found at the Michelin Rubber Plantation.
