STEPHEN FRANK SELGRADE
What a great guy and friend of mine
He used to drive me to school.. We had a lot of fun in the old neighborhood. I still miss him to this very moment.
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
One of my fondest memories of my brother, Stevie, is when he used to give me and my friends piggy-back rides across our front porch, on 54th Street, in Philadelphia. I was very young when my brother passed away, so I do not have many memories. I do remember when two Marines came to our front door and told my father that he was killed. I remember every detail of that moment. It was and is one of the saddest days of my life.
