You Will Be Missed

Alfred N. Potter was only 27 years old when God called him back to Paradise. Married for a short period of time, he left much of his life behind him when he went to Vietnam to serve his country in its quest to preserve freedom and world peace. Thankfully his presence in this world will never be forgotten, for he brought the news to many military service men in Vietnam. Thank you, Alfred, for your dedicated service and your ultimate sacrifice to your country and its people. You will be missed.

Remembrance

We have been researching Vietnam casualties in our History class for the past couple of months. Our teacher assigned us each four names that we had to research. I was assigned to you. After reading several items on the history og your life I was deeply saddened. You were only 28 years old and so recently married. After only 11 days of marriage, you were taken away from your one true love. I can't imagine what it must have been like to leave your wife and go to war with the thought that there was a chance you wouldn't come home. Now when I stare into the rubbing of your name that I received from the virtual wall, the letters have so much more meaning. I now know that you graduated from Rogers High School and you were in the Air Force. I think that more importantly I know that the people who died in the service of our country were not just statistics.

Sincerely,
Michelle L. Johnson
Burrillville High School
