Remembering you this Christmas Season 2019.

Thank you for your service Ruben. You were a few years older than me. I grew up in Robstown too. I also fought in Vietnam, but unlike you and the hundreds of brothers that died that horrible day, I came home. I don’t live in Robstown anymore but when I visit I visit the war memorial there. I have also visited the Vietnam National Memorial Wall in Washington DC, where I have also visited you and other brothers that are listed there. RIP my Brother.
