The Uncle I never met, but the Uncle I feel like I know.

Growing up I always heard the heart warming stories about my Uncle Robert, A hero who died 25 years before I was born in the Vietnam war. My mother would always tell me how you would send her and my Uncle Louie some change in the letters you would send back home to our family. The sudden shock of your passing and the hole you left in our family is still felt to this day. I see it when my Uncle Ernest ( your brother and bestfriend) talks about you and still chokes up to this day. The lasting Imact you left on your 20 years on this earth was so impactful that we still talk about what a wonderful person you were. A quiet, humble but loving and well respected, man. I always wanted to hear more stories about you growing up, and still do. As time went on and the family was able to meet one of your fellow brothers from your unit who credits you with saving his life I found myself in more of awe thinking about the man you were. I am so proud and full of pride when i talk about my Uncle Robert and the sacrifice you made for our country. How you died attempting to save eight of your fellow brother lives. Wow, you died a hero.I sometimes wish I could tell everyone of how courageous you were that day. I also think about how scared you must have been fighting in a war so far away from home. I think about how brave you were, how much courage you had to fight for your country and represent our family name. It is that courage, that bravery and your story that inspired me in my life today. The job I have requires alot of that. And when I find myself in a situation where I'm scared or nervous, you inspire me. Your bravery on the battlefield that day. It keeps me going. We have the same blood, and i like to think i have your same courage. I like to think im respected as much as you were. Even though you will always be more of a hero than I ever will be. But you are also my hero, uncle. I love all my Uncles dearly....but something tells me, we were alike. I know you would have been not only my Uncle but one of my best friends (just like your brother Ernest is ) I can't wait till I meet you up in heaven one day and get to shake your hand and talk about life with you. YOUR my hero, Uncle Robert. And I will continue to honor you by giving everything I have in my job, marriage and life. I will be brave, strong, courageous and fight with a fire like you did for your country. Gone but never fogotten, until we meet, rest easy, Uncle Robert, I love you.
