You haven't been forgotten.

Lenny, I was only 8 years old when you went to Nam. You were like a big brother to me. You always had time for an annoying little kid at the Golden Raiders hall where your step father and my dad were on the committee. It was difficult learning about your death and I find myself still thinking fondly of you more than 50 years later. I miss you still to this day big brother.

My Best Friend

Lenny We joined the USMC together on the "Buddy System" which would put us in boot camp and our first school together. At that time the first school was Jungle Training in La. I was too short and too light to join at that time and I was held back. I have always thought that PERHAPS if I was there you would not have been killed. I have been placing flags on your square for MANY years. Semper Fi Buddy.

Family Friend

Lenny and my brother joined the Marines together, however my brother never made it to Nam with him. He always spoke fondly and solemnly of his friend and never forgot him. When I visited the Wall many years ago I etched his name for my brother....it could have been his name on there as well but fate had a different plan. My brother passed away 3 years ago....I hope they have found each other again. Thanks to All that Served and Sacrificed for Our Country.....RIP

Remembering an American Hero

Dear PFC Leonard Picanso Jr, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

Curt Carter
