His white convertible

I met Stosh as a very young nurse. He was so darn cute. We started dating and he would come to pick me up at St Elizabeth Hospital School of Nursing dorm in his white convertible. He took me to Little Falls to meet friends and family. Then he decided to be a true patriotic American and join the Marines. I have this picture along with pictures he sent me from Vietnam. He came home once to visit me in Syracuse and then the letters stopped and he was listed MIA until the day his story made the front page of the Syracuse newspaper. May God bless you and keep you in the palm of his hands until we meet again.
