Thank you for your service as a Field Artillery Officer. Yesterday was your 50th anniversary in heaven. 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.
Remembering An American Hero
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
A family friend
Captain Brown was a friend of My Mom and Dad. He visited our home in his Blues one time when I was about 6 years old before he shipped out to Viet Nam. My Mom has pictures of him in her scrap book and she still crys when she remembers him, like on Veteran's Day.
