Played Football with Gerry... We love you and miss you, Gerry!

I played 8th Grade Football (for the Wildcats!) and also served in Vietnam from 1969-1971. I was touched when I saw his name on the wall of the Vietnam Memorial in DC. He was a quality person.

we will remember them.....

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Thank You

Dear Sgt Gerald Szysputowski, Thank you for your service as a Field Radio Operator. Your 54th anniversary was 2 days ago, sad. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Another summer is soon. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

An old man remembers a young kid

Walking down memory lane took me past the Memorial in City Park where I saw Gerry's name among 67 others who died in Vietnam. We were linemen on the Wildcats football team for the 1960 season; we battled in the trenches then later in a war. We both flew home, me in a seat, Gerry in a box; love the warrior, hate the war. Our leaders squandered national Blood and Treasure; for Gerry it was 3 words: duty; honor; country. We can never forget!

A TRIBUTE

In 1967 I served with Sgt Ski in H, 3/13 at Las Pulgas, Camp Pendleton.
He will always be remembered as a good friend and with the greatest respect.
