I Will Never Forget

You were my friend whom I met via the mail by way of my cousin, John Reilly, when you were with the 196th. I told John I prayed for him and his friends every day. You wrote one day to thank me - we wrote for almost a year. You were so close to coming home - I thought for sure I would get to meet you, but instead I got the call from my Aunt that your life ended on 3/5/67. It was heartbreaking - the closest I got to you was at your wake in Union City. I knew from your letters that you were a good, loyal man. You loved your country, your family and your fellow soldiers. We as a country are proud of you and of the other soldiers who gave all. RIP my friend. It's 53 years later and I will never forget. Thanks to those who shared photos of Jerry. The only one which he sent me was taken when my wallet disappeared many years ago. I am so grateful to see his face again.
