honoring you...

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Douglas Michael Cain, sir

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

Curt Carter

Too short a friendship, but never forgotten

When I arrived in Vietnam I was sent to the 43rd IPSD and met Doug, June of '68. We became friends. I was one of 3 vet techs at the 43rd, and they only needed one. I could stay and be a dog handler, or leave. Doug was one of many to tell me to leave. Possible life saving advice. Shortly thereafter, we lost Doug.
