My friend whom I will never forget.

I went in the Army with Charles. We went thru Basic, A.I.T. and got stationed in Viet Nam in the same unit. I was in A. Co and "Red"( as we called Charles ) was in B Co. I only saw him a few times in Nam, when we happened to be in the rear area at the same time. We'd get together and have a few beers.
While I was in Cam Rahn Bay in April, 1970 I ran into Charles. He was just returning from Bangcock on his R&R. We spent that night together at the enlisted mens club and the next morning he went back to his unit and I left for Australia. As I was leaving Charles loaned me his watch to use. Upon returning a week later I heard about his death. I went to his Co. 1st. Sgt. and asked him to make sure the watch was put in with his personnal belongings.
For over the past 32 years there hasn't hardly been a day gone by that I don't think of my friend. Coincidentally, my son was born on Dec. 12, 1972. He and Charles share the same birthday.
Several times down through the years I thought about locating his family and I didn't know how to go about it. The computer age has sure made the world alot smaller. I used google.com and entered Forge Valley, Ma. I'm going to go through my army photos as I am sure I have a few of my friend. If anyone is interested please contact me.
Sincerely,
Jim Scully

A fine and brave soldier who died serving his country.

Goodbye, America's heroes, we have shamefully failed to stand by you, for all the wrong reasons which had tempted us aside! Now we must pay the price for letting those who survived down, as well knowing some who didn't have to die have died! We must honor them every day when we see their names upon the Wall! And from every corner of the land, they answered to the call! Every Soldier, Sailor, Airman, and Marine and Coast Guardsman, too. They all gave their lives so we can live beneath the old Red White and Blue! For those who have gone before, we say "WELL DONE! Be thou at peace!" Charlie,wesalute you. Your devotion to DUTY - HONOR - COUNTRY ,will NEVER...I SAY AGAIN, WILL NEVER be extinguished from our minds!
