Thank you for your service to our country so long ago sir. You died at 18 years of age. I am 74 and have lived a long and fulfilling life. It is tragic you never had that same opportunity. May you rest in eternal peace.

I Knew Him Briefly

In January of 1969, while I was a student at Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica, NY, I had gone with my roommate to visit her family near Buffalo during winter break. I got on the train in Buffalo en route to my parents' home in Albany, NY.
There was a young man, about my age -- a Marine in uniform -- sitting on the train (quite handsome!), so I asked him if I could sit in the seat next to him and he said yes. We talked for several hours. He had completed basic training and due to leave for Vietnam soon. He was proud, but also admitted he was scared. We exchanged names. His was Herbie Tuttle, he told me and he was from Schenectady, NY, the city next to Albany, where my folks lived.
Several years later, I did an internet search for him and found him. He was a casualty in the Vietnam War.
But here is the unenviable, or "impossible" part. I rode that train with him in January of 1969. Herbie died in Vietnam on May 9, 1968.
How and why? I don't know. But I do know what I know and what happened that day on the train.
Thank you, Herbie, for your service to our country. I am proud to have "known" you.
