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
God Bless You, Roy
Roy and I (and two other men) arrived in Duc Pho on the same day, were assigned to B Company, received our weapons, assigned to the 2nd platoon and went to the field on Aug 5th. Roy died in a fire-fight on Aug. 8th. Even though, I only knew Roy a few days, I still think about him often and the sacrifice he made. God Bless ‘Roy’ and his family.
