I wish I was old enough to get to know you

Uncle Jr., I was less than 2 years old when you died fighting for our country. I wish I would have had more time to get to know you. Thank you for your courage and bravery. I hope we meet again someday. Your nephew, Steve Shrout

Gone Too Soon

Jr, you were my Uncle, my Dad's little brother. I was just a little kid( real little) when you went away to fight for your country, our country. There were lots of pictures of you with me & my brothers & with my Dad, Mom & Grandma & Grandpa. I always thought you were so handsome. I just wish that I had gotten to have you around to get to know instead of only having the pictures. I know you must have been a really brave man to do what you did to protect all of us. I think of you often & wonder if you are now up "there" & still protecting us. I like to think you are. I love you Uncle Jr.
