honoring you....

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions and spends himself in a great worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end triumph of high achievement and, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while caring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold, timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. Theodore Roosevelt

Thank You

Dear Sgt Philip Richardson, Thank you for your service as a Rifleman. Your 52nd anniversary just passed, sad. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. The fall of Afghanistan reminds me of Saigon. It is very sad. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

Remembering SGT Richardson

Thank you, Seargent, for your service and sacrifice. You are one of some 58,000 + Americans who lost their lives over in Vietnam. EVERY ONE of you are special and have earned your right to be remembered by a grateful nation. I don't know what else to say, except that you will NEVER be forgotten!

Photo remembrance of Philip Owen Richardson

Photo was published in the Austin Herald in 1973 and was obtained with the help of Herb Reckinger Jr. with the St. Paul Park, Minnesota Historical Society, Darrell May of Savage, Minnesota, and Jaimie Timm with the Mower County Historical Society. Thank you Herb, Darrell, and Jaimie!

You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor Philip.
