Thank You

Mike, When you left for Viet Nam, I simply shook your hand--I didn't know then what else to do. I think of you often and visit your graveside often when I travel back to Washington, OK.
Now that I have a daughter and now that a co-worker friend of mine has lost his son in Iraq, I better understand the tremendous loss that your Mom and Dad experienced. And how difficult it must have been for your wife and little girl to grow up without her Daddy.
The leadership you always showed on the basketball court and the baseball field must have carried over to your service in Viet Nam. You were then, and still are, my Hero.

To you and the thousands of others who gave their lives for my freedoms, Thank You. I am proud to have been your friend.

NEVER FORGOTTEN

FOREVER REMEMBERED

Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul....and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.



From your "Band of Vietnam Brothers"
