You are not forgotten

They shall not grow old as we that are left grow, age shall not weary them nor the years condemn, at the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.......

Still Remembered

I believe it was around 1969 about 43 years ago I received my MIA bracelet..the bracelet's was engraved with Lt. Gordon S. Perisho's name. I wore that bracelet and never took it off for years, I continue to remember his name and his service and sacrifice for our country. As I had opportunity for remembrance this Memorial Day it occurred to me that I could possibly find him somewhere listed at a memorial wall. When I searched for his name I found him here and his picture for the very first time. Lt. Gordon Perisho will continue to be remembered and honored in my heart as one who paid the ultimate sacrifice for sake of Freedom for me and for all. With grateful thanks I salute you. You were in my prayers for many years and your family will continue to remain there. I still have my bracelet tucked safely in my remembrance box.

If I should die...remembrances for LCDR Gordon Samuel PERISHO, USN...who made the ultimate sacrifice

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
