Fifty years gone today
Whenever Larry or I dream of you, you look the same as when we last saw you and we both ask the same question: where have you been?
Fifty years of missing you.
Laurette and Larry
Remembering An American Hero
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice 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. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, Sir
Exemplary soldier and JROTC instructor
SSgt Rand was posted to Xavier HS, NYC, JROTC unit where I, along with over 1000 cadets benefitted from his example and mentorship for 3 yrs. I would have been proud to serve with him in Vietnam or anywhere.
Our Army needs more like him.
My Dad's Best Friend
You were the dearest friend my Dad ever had - I am forever greatful for the happiness your friendship and the memories of your friendship brought him.
Now that Rosalind has joined you in heaven, I am sure she is at peace.
