High School

Father Brett; I remember your smiling face throughout my 4 years at Chanel High School in Bedford, Ohio. In our sophomore year you became our teacher for Latin II; you found out that our class didn't get a very good foundation in Latin I the previous year, and you worked hard with us all to get us through 2 years of Latin in one year. I was terribly saddened when I found out that you had been killed in Quang Tri province in 1968 while you were performing your Catholic Chaplain duties for so many who were wounded without regard for your own safety. May you be in heaven with your family and many others of us who graduated in 1965 and are now deceased, also. God Bless, Father Brett.

Thank you for being a Navy Staff Corps Chaplin with the 3rd Marine Division. Thank you also for the comfort you gave the Marines in need. Semper Fi. As a Catholic, I appreciate that you were there for him. It was Christ-like. Independence Day is approaching, and it is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.
