Remembrance

We went through bootcamp together in 1967 at MCRD San Diego (Platoon 1068). He was the platoon 'house mouse'. Feisty guy, with a good attitude. Learned of his KIA many years after returning from Viet Nam and discharged from the Corps.

Happy Birthday, Tony ~

Dearest Tony,
How we all wish you were here to celebrate your 60th Birthday. Mom would make meatloaf, your favorite, and Pop would supply the banana, whipped cream cake from Barry's. After all these years, we think of you constantly. Time does not heal all wounds, but the time between tears does grow longer. You are loved and missed, more than you could have ever imagined.
Always,
Joan

From Boot Camp to History

I remember our plane trip from Oakland to San Diego. I remember the words we heard for 8 weeks in San Diego, "Platoon 1068 on the Road" shouted by our drill instructor. When I saw you in Oceanside at the USO, you mentioned you were on your way to Nam. I asked you not to get yourself killed. You looked different. You were just done with BITS. You didn't look like a kid anymore. Next time I saw you was on paper on Easter 1968. I was a casualty reporter for the 3rdMarDiv. One of my dark days I'll never forget. I wish I would have said more to you. My children and grandchildren know of you. I'm one of the lucky ones.
