Iraq War veteran

Dear SGT Bestmann,

I acquired the watch you wore in Vietnam. I imagine you might have been wearing it when you suffered your tragic fate. I did not know any of its provenance when I purchased it and only learned afterward of your name and your service in Vietnam.

I had the watch fixed and the next year, I learned my unit would be deploying to Iraq as part of “Operation Iraqi Freedom.” I wore your watch every day I was in Iraq in your honor.

I am so sorry you were lost to the Vietnam War, but especially so at such a young age. I was also a Sergeant (US Army) and was blessed to serve for seventeen years before I had to medically retire due to my injuries from deployment.

God bless you and all others lost to the wars fought by our country.
