your mother

Alfred,
Although I did not have the privilege to know you, we have reached out to each other in some small way. I had been to the Angel Fire Memorial in Angel Fire, New Mexico in the fall of 2004. It is a wonderful memorial in northern New Mexico in the Moreno valley. A chapel that is part of the memorial sweeps across the beautiful landscape towards the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, a most fitting site for a memorial.I have been there on several occasions,and the power of it all brings me to tears each visit. Inside the musuem are books containing pictures and accompanying information of all those who died in Vietnam, but are only there if a family member or friend provides material to the Angel Fire museum. When I discovered that only one of the five servicemen from Titusville who died in the war had a picture at the museum, I decided to try to reach the other families to inform them. I sent a brief letter and some photos of Angel Fire to your parents, who are still alive and continue to live in Titusville. Your mother has contacted me and sent a picture of you in uniform, along with some personal information to me, and to Angel Fire. Now others will know of you when they visit Angel Fire. It's a small token of respect and gratitude for your supreme sacrifice so many years ago, and I wish you could have returned to Titusville and your family safely. May we who live out our lives always remember you for what you gave at such a young age. And I hope others remember the terrible sacrifice and pain endured by your family and friends.

HOMETOWN SOLDIER

TITUSVILLE LOST FIVE MEN IN VIETNAM. THEY ALL DIED WITHIN A YEAR (67-(68) OF EACH OTHER. I DON'T BELIEVE THERE IS ANY FITTING MEMORIAL IN TOWN WITH THEIR NAMES. I WISH THEY HAD LIVED, AS I HAVE. I RETURNED FROM VIETNAM IN APRIL 1968. WE ALL OWE THEM SO MUCH. REST IN PEACE. WE WILL NOT FORGET YOU.
