honoring you.....

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions and spends himself in a great worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end triumph of high achievement and, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while caring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold, timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. Theodore Roosevelt

Dear Mr. Smelser,

I thank you for service and bravery, for you sacrifice and honor displayed in the Thou Thien Hue Province (Vietnam War). We have a school that demonstrates the honor and respect that you and people like you showed. I got to see your name on the traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial. I live in Texas and have even more respect for the area that you grew up in. That area has raised many great heroes that have fought in the Vietnam War. Again, I thank you for your service. Sincerely Elijah G.

Thank You

Dear PFC Roger Smelser, Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. Your 53rd anniversary was yesterday, sad. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Winter will end soon, and Lent has begun. Time moves quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.
