Angel Day

On this your angel day I wanted to express my gratitude to you for your service to our country and for the greatest sacrifice any man can make – your precious life.

Many have said that the Vietnam War was a pointless war and that the loss of your life was in useless, but I do not feel that this is true. Your service and sacrifice have not been in vain, but has been a source of healing and hope. This is signified in all the messages left by the youth of our nation on this sacred site. I read their comments and know that you are not forgotten by them and that you and your brothers-in-arms will be an influence for good for generations to come.

I will always remember you and the others on The Wall. I will do my utmost best to never to forget you and to do all that I can do to keep your memory alive. Even if it is just to leave a message here on your remembrance page on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial site. This is my promise to you and the others.

Rest well now and know that you are always remembered by this humble American Girl.

We fondly remember SGT Brown

Many in our organization fondly remember Sgt Brown at our reunions every two years at Fort Benning, Ga., the current home of the 50th Infantry with whom Sgt Brown served proudly in South Vietnam. Those interested in contacting the men who served with Sgt Brown in Vietnam...including men who were involved in the action of October 31, 1967 where our former Drill Sgt was killed in action, please contact me, 1/50th Association Historian, or visit our 1/50th Infantry Home page at: www.ichiban1.org.

Thank You So Much

Dear soldier, my name is Zach Nicolay and I’m leaving this remembrance as an assignment for my sophomore World History class in Gridley, Illinois. But I promise that this means so much more than any assignment ever will. There is no greater way for one to express one's gratitude for their country than to pay the ultimate sacrifice. I thank you for that, and I am forever in debt to you.
