I Salute You!

We both come from same country and served same time in Vietnam but we never met.Standing in front of your name at the Traveling Vietnam Memorial in your American home town, Norwalk, CT, I felt to be a proud American Finn. I salute You!

Some words for Lauri Törni

Lauri Törni alias Larry Thorne was a Finnish officer who fought in the IIWW in the armies of Finland and Germany, and later in the US Army. He was a professional soldier who, I think, lived and died just the way he wanted to; yet I think that it was a sad way for him to die, almost as far away from Finland as possible. The jungles of South-East Asia instead of the snow drifts of Karelia were at last to become his grave. I guess he was a restless man who would have hated something like this, but I still want to say: Rest in Peace, lepää rauhassa, wherever you are now.
