honoring you....

Thank you for your service to our country so long ago sir. While all deaths in Vietnam are tragic that you died just five days before your 21st birthday is especially so. May you rest in eternal peace.

A Good Soldier and friend.

Lloyd, Tracy, and I spent many weeks together as a team on the M-60. Lloyd for some reason always wanted to carry that damn gun. With 100 rounds it weighed about 25 pounds. I was with both of them when they died. Tracy was killed on February 12, 1967 and Lloyd was killed on April 8, 1967. I had been wounded back in November and eventually returned in late December 1966 but not on the M-60. Lloyd was a very good soldier and believed in what he was doing. We were all lean, mean, fighting machines back then. Most of us weighing about 140 lbs. However, most of us carried close to 100 pounds of gear, weapons, and ammo. I never heard
Lloyd complain, even when he could hardley walk. I can still see him trying to get up, in a pouring rain. During October, we had been force marching in the jungle and mountains of the Central Highlands for weeks and he was exhausted but wouldn't let Jones or me help him. I'm sure Lloyd and Tracy are together sharing stories, and laughs. Hopefully one day I will be able to share those stories and laughs with them.

He was my brother

He went to war because he believed in our country.
Years later his mother who had grieved him always found out he died for unwinnable lie.
May true patriotism remain.
And may our country not our brothers sisters sons daughters friends to die in vain

Thank You

Dear SSgt Lloyd Stearns, Thank you for your service as an Infantryman with the 1st Cavalry. I researched you on your 76th birthday, happy birthday. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. The 47th anniversary of the Fall of Saigon just passed. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.
