Gone But Never Forgotten.

I was 11 years old when Mike was killed in Vietnam. He was 20 years old. The second to the oldest of nine children. I will never forget the night in December that the two army officers knocked on our door to inform us of his death. My dad turned on the porch light and looked out. He knew as soon as he saw them what was wrong. We had to call his fiancee' and tell her. He arrived home in a few days. When he arrived, my mom insisted that they drive him by our house one last time before taking him to the funeral home. We are from a small town, I think everyone in town must have came to pay their respects and sympathy. I have fond memories of my brother he was ten years older than me. I can remember his Yellow chevy he drove. I would polish his shoes for him while he got ready for a date on Saturday night. He gave me 25 or 50 cents, but to me back then that was allot of money.He gave me a Cinderella watch for my birthday one year. We will always remember him the way he was when he left but will wonder what he would have done when he returned home. I'm sure he would have married and had children. Such a tragic loss of his life and all the others that gave their life for our country.
