REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR HARMON JOSEPH BOVE JR
POSTED ON 12.18.2004

I Have Not Forgotten

I have been too long in leaving a remembrance,the right words don't come easy. I'll never forget the day you left Liberty Bridge for a patrol in the Arizona. I told you to watch where you put your big feet, like everyone else you chuckled and said "Don't worry." I never saw you again. I have remembered you ever since. You were due to rotate home to the"world" April 17 and would have been 20 on March the 13. I have the article about you that was published in the Stars and Stripes, you were quite the athlete. Played catcher's for the Astro farm system after being drafted by the Atro's in 1968. There is not a single baseball season that doesn'go by I am not reminded of the promise for me and my kids(which I have 3 girls now)to come watch you play ball. You were to have returned home and played for the Astros. Well this year they almost made it to the World Series but at the ripe ole age of 49 I don't think you would have been catching.
I know we talked about other things but as I grow older my memory fades for somethings, but I will always remember you. I have visited the wall to see your name for myself, to touch it and feel your presence and your strength. I am sorry for all of the seasons you did not have, or the family that could have been. I am sorry for your folks and I hope the loss of their son has lessened over the years. I pray you are at peace and in God's tender care. I will never forget you.

You Are Remembered

We met as members of Echo Company, 2nd BN, 5th MARINES, 1ST MARDIV, stationed at An Hoa, Vietnam. In over 33 years, memories have faded and I give thanks for some of them to be gone.

I’ve never been sure why I have often thought about Harm and some of the things he said and the way he said them. At the time, we all made plans to get together after we return to the “world”. Whether or not that would have happened with Harm, I’ve often wondered.

I remember Harm was always “gung-ho” and wanted to be in the field. When I began working in the office I would, from time to time, find tasks to bring Harm back to the rear area so we could socialize. Harm always returned to the field.

We served with some of the finest young men you would ever have wanted to know. The courage and honor of both our Marines and our Navy Corpsman, Doc Weems & Baker, is a memory that will never fade.

It was an honor and privledge to have known Harmon Bove.

Semper Fi.

To Harm’s family – God’s Speed.
