Angel Day

You will never be forgotten by this American girl.

Your life was full of honor, devotion, and love for your country. The sacrifice of your precious life was not and will not be in vain.

You have and will be a source of all that is good for generations to come. This is evident in the messages that the youth of America leave on your remembrance sites.

You are not merely a name engraved on a granite wall -- you were and are a son, a brother, a husband, a grandson, a father, an uncle, a nephew, and a friend. You are real and as long as I live you will never be forgotten.

God bless you and your family on this your angel day.

Rest well now -- I will see on the other side.

Never Be Forgotten

Dear Soldier,
I am doing a project in a couple of my classes and we have to write remembrances for as many Vietnam Veterans as we want. I am 17 years old. You were close to my age when you went to Vietnam War and gave your Supreme Sacrifice. You fought, gave your all, and died for what you believed in, and I sit here and wonder would I have the courage to do what you had to do. I know I would be scared as I’m sure you were. I just want to let you know that you will never be forgotten.

God Bless You,
Amanda Kinney

Marvin, the friend and relative to many. You are our Hero

My remberences of Marvin go back to when we were children. Marvin was my cousin. He was a young man who enjoyed life, loved to hunt and fish and enjoyed the outdoors. Marvin was always one that you could have a good time with. He had an engaging personality and was enjoyable to be around.
I always enjoyed visiting him which we did quite often. I will always cherish the memories of our times together. I know that he gave his life for something that he believed in. I recall vividly the last time i saw him. He was roofing a house and I was entering the Air Force. I tried to convince him to join the Air Force with me but he was intent on serving in the Marines. He knew the risk involved and was willing to take them. I will always honor him. He gave the supreme sacrifice for our country in a time when that was not popular. May we meet again. I love you Marvin.

Your cousin,
Danny
