we will remember them......

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Thank You

Dear Sp4 Richard Veach, Thank you for your service as a CG-47 Helicopter Repairer. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart . Autumn has begun. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it still needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

Dear Linda Veach

I know of Richard's sacrifice (and your family's) through Bill Bray who posts here. He was there when Richard was killed. He speaks of your husband often. If you don't think it is too intrusive I would like to know some things about the lives you and your daughter have built after Veach's passing. I pray for survivors and your losses.

RIP Veach

I arrived two days earlier into the 200th as a transfer from the 147th. It was my first day on the flight line. You guys hovered up the runway and the crewchief gave me thumbs up. I turned to go into my ship and I heard the crash. Me and several other ran to the ship, it was on its side, started to burn and we pulled the pilots out, both partially burned on the head and face area. The ammo started going off and we ran for cover. I ran around the front of the ship and from behind a barrel I saw Veach squirming out from under the wreck, his fatigues smoldering. He was crawling on all fours , took two or three steps and before I could move everything exploded around him and the fire ate him up. All I could do then is call the fire people to spray foam but it was too late. That day haunts me till today. Veach, I wish I would have done more. RIP fellow Pachyderm, your war is over. I am forever sorry.
