Daddy

I never had the opportunity for you to see me go from ribbons and curls to perfume and jewelry; to see your smiling face at the end of the platform on graduation day or to walk me down the aisle to give me away. You never got to gaze in to the eyes of your baby all grown up as she held her first son. But I've gotten to hear from mommy and grandma what a brave and selfless man you were. You gave your life to serve our country and save the lives of others. The heartache of your absence has and never will diminish. You are and always will be my hero. I miss you and love you. Your Princess.

A Lonely Grandson

I was never given the opportunity to know my grandfather. Before I was even born, when my father(Dale's Son)was only seven years old, a kid himself; my grandfather was taken from this earth unjustly, but courageously. From my understanding of my grnadfathers death, from what I have learned from old newspaper clippings, talking to my father, and talking to my grandmother; I have learned that my grandfather died in a succesful attempt to save the lives of other men who were with him that fateful day in Cambodia. My grandfather put himself, unhesitantly, in the direct line of fire in order to return fire and give his fellow men an opportunity to retreat. I may not have had the chance to meet, talk to, and grow up with my grandfather; however, Dale Arthur Anderson will forever dwell in my heart and I am sure in the hearts of the men he saved that day, as a hero, a soldier, and an American that died for me, for his fellow men, and for thousands of young Americcan who have yet to be conceived. I hope I am not speaking for myself when I say, "Thank you grandpa Dale, thank you for not giving up and not giving in, thank you for fighting with all the fight you had in you. Thank you from a grandson, a young man, and most of all; thank you, from an American. I love you grandpa Dale, you will be forever missed."

In rememberance,
Ryan Dale Anderson
