My grandfather was the first to post here, now I will.

My grandfather, Robert (Bob) Hood was the first to post a "rememberance" on this page in what seems to be 2002, a year after I was born. I would highly reccommend you read his post if you wish to know a bit more about Emil. I did not know much about Emil beyond what was posted here on this page, but his name was a common one in my house growing up. I always knew that my grandfather carried him on his wrist in the form of a rememberance bracelet, and the same picture you see at the top of the page was printed out and framed in my grandfather's office.

Sadly, it is currently 2/4/2021, and my grandfather has died during the COVID-19 pandemic and to the disease itself. This happened just a week or so ago. I write this so that it is known that with the death of my grandfather, Emil's still remembered by the family. I have carried a bracelet of another of my grandfather's friends for a few years now, since I was about 13 (currently 19), and now I carry the bracelet of Emil Ziss, and will until I die, hopefully passing the responsibility onto my own children.

I do this so that his memory is kept alive. I might not have known the man personally, but I will never forget the stories my grandfather told me, and what they meant to him.

I will not forget.

My grandfather was the first to post here, now I will.

My grandfather, Bob Hood, served with Emil in Nam', and sadly, recently passed due to COVID-19. He was the first person to post here in this website in 02'. Growing up, I was told about Emil to a decent extent... It was hard for my grandfather to speak about Vietnam besides some token things he told family, an experience I think most of people like me (who have Vietnam veterans as grandfathers and fathers.)

I would like to say that I now wear Emil R. Ziss like my grandfather, and that Emil's memory will be kept by me, and hopefully my children. It's the least I could do.

God bless all who read this, please remember this man.
