A Strong Reminder
In September 2015, the Vietnam Moving Wall will arrive in New Richmond, WI, and the memories of that time in our lives, when I was in high school, hearing of your death, how overwhelmingly affected each one of us were. My brother came back from Vietnam, only to die some years later from the effects of agent orange.
May you rest in peace, may each one of your family have peace, and may they have the courage to celebrate who you were and what you did for each one of us.
The Final Bridge
Remembering an American Hero
Dear PFC Robert Louis Cloutier, 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
