An "ole" friend from the Fairmount neighborhood

I am at the Vietnam Memorial wall in Washington, and came to the wall to specifically view Patty's name in remembrance and respect. Patty and I grew up together in the Fairmount neighborhood, and were down at the draft center together the day he was drafted. I remember Patty as a special guy, caring, compassionate and with a cool sense of humor. I remember as teenagers going to dances and getting with him. Patty is a true hero who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. God Bless You Patty!

Remember you each Memorial Day.

Pat, I'm an alum of Roman, Class of 1969. You graduated in 1966 (my freshman year). We were in a few school activities (Glee club and the play). Like you, we had several "jocks" in the (how to meet the girls' activities). For those who do not know Roman is an all-boys school. We met many many times, and you were by far the coolest, most outgoing and helpful. Your death in Viet Nam was a shock to your brother Cahillites. I was in Romans band when we played at the dedication to your park at 24th and Aspen Sts. You are missed by so many family, friends and the Sons of Thomas E. Cahill. Bet you would have had a great life if not scarified for your country. God Rest.

honoring you.....

Thank you for your service to our country so long ago sir. While all deaths in Vietnam are tragic that you died just three days after your 21st birthday is especially so. May you rest in eternal peace.

Hero cousin.

I was 8 when my cousin Paddy lost his life in Vietnam. My dad was friends with him. His brother Bobby stayed at our house for a few days at the time of his death. I learned about Paddy later. I sorry to say I didn't get to know this great man too much. But he will always be our family hero.
