Caring

Bob "Sonny" Thruston used to babysit me when I was a tyke. He was the first person I knew killed in the Vietnam War. All the kids on the street we grew up on knew him and respected him. May his memory be a blessing to his friends and family.

"Sonny"

I grew up across the street from this friend who was 10 years older than I. We all called him Sonny. He was the first person I knew who died in a war, and every time I heard about soldiers dying in Vietnam, I thought of Sonny and his family, their loss, their sacrifice.
