Missing Steve

I grow up on Oriole Drive, just around the corner from Steve. He was a bit older, but we all played football in my yard. I remember Steve going into the service, and will always remember the sorrow I felt when I heard my childhood friend was gone. I miss you Steve and think of you often.

Will never forget

Steve and I were talking about cars the day he left to take some code books to Gio Lindh where we had a small detachment in support of the 12th Marines. I had just returned from there after being there for 60 days. Steve was hit by a claymore mine and died on the medical evacuation helicopter on the way back to Dong Ha. I will never forget that day, talking with him. My sincere condolences to his family and friends who knew him. Semper Fidelis means always faithful, to him and my lasting memories of him,

Respectfully,
Sgt. Richard McDaniel

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Stephen Lee Traughber, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
