My Father's Letter

I found an old photo and went to take it out of the frame, behind it I found a letter from my father to my mother written they day before he was kia. She must have tucked it away, perhaps to read later as the letter came after the news from the guys with the big white star on the green car, my memory. The letter spoke of not much rest and for a change a new movie to watch, "Cleopatra" with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. At the end, he expressed his personal feelings for his wife, (he was her true love till she passed, Sept 15th 2018) he told my mother to be sure and thank me for my last letter, said my letters were improving. My proudest moment! Thanks Dad and GOD BLESS ALL the fallen Fathers and Brethren we've lost. We remain strong, because of ALL of YOU!

Final Mission of WO1 John R. Urban

On February 9, 1965, WO1 John R. Urban was piloting a U.S. Army Reserves UH-1B helicopter from 68th Aviation Company, 145th Combat Aviation Battalion when he was struck by a single round on the left side of his flak (ballistic) vest. The aircraft was able to continue flight and flew to the nearest medical pad where WO1 Urban was declared dead. It is possible that the round that hit him was friendly fire. [Taken from vhpa.org]
