American Hero

Dear Lieutenant Bochnewetch,
You sir, are a hero for your service and the sacrifice you made for our country. My Uncle, Harry went to Officer Training school with you. He speaks highly of your friendship. He visits you yearly. My uncle Harry along with thousands of other veterans and supporters ride across the United States on motorcycles to the Vietnam Memorial Wall. It’s a healing process for those left behind. It’s also a remembrance and tribute to those who lost their lives and those who were prisoners of war or missing in action. He goes to your name, touches it, prays for you, honors and salutes you,

I hope your wife and twin daughters receive some sort of comfort knowing we Americans, are so appreciative
of the freedom men such as yourself have allowed us to maintain, We are so very grateful.

It’s documented that you died from wounds from a land mine that exploded while you were directing an infantry platoon on a combat mission.

Heroes are never forgotten. Not only will you never be forgotten Lieutentent Bochnewetch, this wall lets your legend live forever. The sacrifice you made is etched in stone.

You would be proud

Yours and Sonja's "child" as mentioned in the newspaper article turned out to be beautiful twin daughters that were neighbors and friends for 36 years now. Sonja brought them up to be wonderful women, mothers and teachers. A great legacy and tribute to you and your sacrifice. Thank you.
