Happy Heavenly Birthday
Remembering An American Hero
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
To Put A Face With A Name
Dear Lenwood, thanks to the article published in the Orange County newspaper to honor the 28 heroes of Orange County who made the supreme sacrfice in the Vietnam War and some of the photos furnished to me by the retired Chief of Police of Orange County, TX, Sam Kittrell, it is my extreme honor to be able to upload your photo to your profile so that it will be proudly displayed on your birthday each and every year when the VVMF Education Center is built. It is with great pride and humility that I post this remembrance and I do so to honor you and your memory and the sacrifice you made for our country. You are not forgotten and remain in many hearts all these years later. You have been designated to be one of God's special angels, along with the love of my life, who also sacrificed his life during this war 45 years ago. God Bless You, Lenwood, for being who you were and for all you did--we live in freedom to this day thanks to heroes like you.
