Thank You

Dear Lt Stuart Tweedy, Thank you for your service as an Airborne Qualified Infantry Unit Commander with the 1st Cavalry. The 57th anniversary of the start of your tour is soon. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. It is Labor Day weekend. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it still needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

A short but great friend

I met Steu on my way to join the Army. We ended up in the same platoon through Basic Training, Advanced Infantry Training and Officers Candidate School. He was my best Army buddy and I think of him often. He went off to airborn training and I to the 4th Infantry Divison in Washington. We wrote a few letters to each other until I got my last one returned stating that he had deceased. I was heartbroken.
Stewart was a mighty fine person and I do hope that he and his loved ones are at peace with their higher power for ever and ever.
Regards,
Frank Willis 1st LT U S Army Retired
