Still think of you often

Going through high school together was a great experience and our undefeated FFA class basketball team was another great memory. I'll never forget being home on leave while my ship, the USS Oriskany, was being repaired as a result of a fire on board during flight operations in Vietnam, you came up to me at a country music show and told me that you had enlisted. Your wife bounced down the isle behind you and I could see that she was due to have your child in a short time. I shared my experience and told you to be careful. However, in keeping with your character, instead of heading for safety at a time of crisis, you ran toward the fire on the USS Forestall in order to try to save lives around you. As it turns out, I was standing helplessly on the deck of the USS Oriskany (your sister ship) watching the horrible event, wishing that there were some way I could help you. I went below deck to the squadron ready room and watched the first casualty report come in to see your name was the fourth name on the list. I was heart broken.
It' been well over 50 years since your death, but there isn't a military related holiday that goes by that I don't think of you. I miss you my friend.
