To my uncle

I was just 2 years old when you gave your life for our country, but feel as if I know you through the stories that Mom has told. I wish I had a chance to know you better. Bless you and thank you for the sacrifice you made. Grandma loves you.

Tragedy

I may not have known you. for I am too young to have been born during this horrible time. But I can still pay my respects and remember those who put their country before their own lives. Thank you.

Your Sacrifice

I was a senior at Galax High when you were a freshman. I look at your picture in my 1967 class book and wonder if we ever took notice of each other. Since the entire school was around 500 kids I'm sure we crossed paths many times. Now you and my brother Dickie share a place in history as the four brave men from our home town who fought and died in Vietnam. I am hopeful your family was able to endure the pain and deep sense of loss when the word came of your death. I know they still miss you as I miss my brother after all this time. We are all very proud of you Junior. May you rest in peace for you surely deserve to do so.
