EARNEST LANE REYNOLDS
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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
I have the greatest honor to read your name during the 'Reading of The Names', at The Vietnam Veterans Memorial, on November 9, 2012.
You will always be remembered by me and a most grateful nation.
Thank you LCPL Earnest L. Reynolds for your service to America. Rest in Peace Brother.
To Put A Face With A Name
Dear Earnest, to honor your memory and the sacrifice you made for our country I want to make sure your photo will be displayed on your birthday each and every year when the Education Center is completed, so it is with great pride and humility that I post this remembrance and picture of you. You are not forgotten and remain in the hearts of many all these years later. You have been designated to be one of God's special angels, along with the love of my life, who also sacrificed his life during this war 45 years ago. God Bless You, Earnest, for being who you were and for all you did--we live in freedom to this day thanks to heroes like you.
