My respect to you

I did not know you but your relative Krissie Coelho Smith has told me about you. I could not locate your name on the Vietnam Memorial wall when i checked the location book you were on the open page. Thanks for your sacrifice.

You Were The Best, LT

I served with 2LT Paulsen in Golf/2/7 in '69 as a Corpsman. I wrapped his body and put it on the chopper. He was the Best, the Brightest, the Bravest, and I grieve for him, still. Thanks, LT... you are missed, always.

Gone but not forgotten

Jerry and I went thru our PLC class together the summer of 1967 and the Basic School in 1968. After graduation we met up in San Francisco CA and flew to Okinawa together. From there we flew to DaNang Vietnam together and to the First division Headquarters together . Jerry went to the 7th 'Marines and I went to the First Marines. I think a lot about this assignment, because if it had been reversed it may have been my picture on the wall instead of Jerry's. He was a great friend and I think of him often. He may be gone but not forgotten by this friend. Semper Fi my friend.

You will never be forgotten....

Gerry was a man of quick wit, always found a laugh in things others might miss. Gerry strived to be the best at everything he did, always wanted to be part of the best, which is why he chose the Marines. He was a good friend to everyone, the kind of guy you could rely on in every situation, and a good leader. Growing up the only boy among 6 sisters made him tough in all the right ways, yet gentle and kind.
