Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Larry Huston Walden, 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

Tribute to Larry Walden

AN UNKNOWN FRIEND

A Tribute to Larry Walden



I remember you not so much as face or a name,

but as a feeling, that part of your soul, you left in my heart.

This is where you are going, this place that only the brave have been,

a place where you know what it means to love your friends.



If I knew that you were not to return, I would have held you in my arms,

to save you from your fate, to protect you from harm.

But you would never have allowed someone else to take your destiny's call,

to honor, duty, country you always gave your all.



Leading men into darkness, down some darkening trail,

you knew that some would fall, and one you did tell.

You gave your life for that unknown soldier,

who would have stood there, where you fell.



Names are lost to history and faces to the grave,

feeling we take with us, beyond the faces and the names.

Thoughts tell us where we are going, feelings tell us where we have been,

love tells us where we are, this love for one another, this love for our friends.



You may have owed a debt that you were bound to pay,

the law that sees that all books are balanced, all compensation met.

That you gave your last devotion for freedom, country and cause,

and to that unknown soldier, known only unto God.



I know that you live now in that place known only to them,

that have no greater love than to lay down their life for their friends.

A place of joy and beauty, a place of peaceā€¦ to know,

that place you have earned, is the love in God's own soul.



We served together in Vietnam,



Cpl. Billy M. Butenhoff

REMEMBERING

I WAS JUST A YOUNG LAD THE DAY THAT LARRY WALDEN WAS BURIED BUT I REMEMBER THE DAY VERY WELL. I WAS HELPING MY DAD REPAIR A FENCE AND THE 21 GUN SALUTE BEGAN. I ASKED MY DAD WHAT WAS THAT AND HE EXPLAINED WHAT IT WAS AND HE DROPPED HIS HAMMER AND WENT INTO A SALUTE AND THERE HE STOOD SILENTLY UNTIL AFTER TAPS WAS FINISHED PLAYING. I HAVE KNOWN LARRY'S PARENTS FOR MANY YEARS AND THEY ARE WONDERFUL CHRISTIAN PEOPLE. LARRY WAS AN ONLY CHILD AND VOLUNTEERED TO GO AND SERVE HIS COUNTRY. MICHAEL DUFF
