My good friend

It began with Platoon 2000 at Parris Island. Ski was my bunkie, we grew as friends and brothers we went to New York City when we were on leave before going to the Nam. I'll never forget that day, we started at the Metrapole and drank beer and watched the gogo dancers. Then we went together to Camp Pendlton for staging. We humped many hills together and went to Tijuana got tattooed and drunk with two of our other buddies. Ski went to G/2/4 we kept in touch by mail, they went afloat to the Phillapines then back to the Nam. He was killed at the battle of Dai Do. I found out when my letter was returned deceased. I miss you brother; we'll meet again.

From a stoop on Academy Street...

I so remember Ronnie Bukowski. In the 60's we would sit on stoops in Jersey City, NJ.... Academy Street, Summit Avenue, Vroom Street.... and watch beautiful, blonde haired Ronnie walk by. So tall and handsome and we would all just melt when he came by. He was older than I was, so I guess you could call it a crush.. But even a little girl of 11 or 12 knew a great looking guy when she saw one. I knew his younger sister, Barbara. and I can still see her face... she was blonde as well... very pretty. . I can still remember the day we heard that Ronnie was killed. It just shocked the entire neighborhood. I know exactly where I was. It just couldn't be true. He was only 20. At the age of 12, I was so broken by this news...never to see his handsome face again. I think my parents attended his funeral at St. Aedan's Church, our home parish. A lot of the neighborhood was there, I'm sure. I honestly never forgot him. I visited the Viet Nam Memorial and made sure I found his name. Ronnie Bukowski of Jersey City NJ...this little girl will never forget you. Semper Fi, sir. Until I see your handsome self again...
