Hi Don from Bev Reynolds! Missed seeing you after all these years!

Don Roddy sat in front of me in our Physical Science Class at A2 High taught by Mr. Scruggs. He sat next to Terry Jones. He used to take good notes and always wore a pencil on his ear and he answered my questions when I missed something Mr. Scruggs said. He used to tease me and call me by my last name, “Reynolds!” He was a big guy with a big heart, a big smile and a big personality and I have really missed him all these years! He invited me and my boyfriend, now my husband who also served in Vietnam, to his going away party before he left for Vietnam. Lots of kids from high school showed up and we met his parents who were very nice! I think they lived on Main St. just down from the Michigan Stadium. We went to a movie about one of the largest battles in Vietnam. At the end of the movie Don’s name flashed across the screen along with many more who were KIA in the same unfortunate battle. Don, I often thought about you and your parents and how difficult your loss must have been for them when you were so young. I can relate as I lost my father in 1944 in Normandy during WWII before I was born. It was very difficult and I lost another step father and my mother all before I was 16. I would like to thank you for making The Greatest Sacrifice, Giving Your Life For Our Freedom! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! RIP, Don, and I hope to see you on the other side! It could be sooner than we all think! Please put in a good word to Our Lord for me!

Love,

Bev Reynolds

Hero to Us All.

Donald B. Roddy, I was brought to tears to see your name in the memorial and can't thank you enough for what you did for our country. I am 21 years old and I am from Ann Arbor, it is very powerful to know that we have walked the same streets and shared the same sights. I can't thank you enough for protecting the beautiful place that we both are from and once called home. I pray that I one day can meet you in the that everlasting light, and shake your hand. You're a hero and savior to us all, you protected your wounded brothers with your life and future generations to come. It is a honor to just simply recognize the name of a hero such as yourself. Thank you Sir, God Bless. -Colin W. Bolick
