How can it be 41 years...
It's 41 years ago today that I came back to FSB Schofield after being out on an ambush and found that you, Billy and James had died at the bunker where I was supposed to be. It was quite a jolt. In May 2009 I brought a memorial plaque for the three of you back to the site of FSB Schofield, but I couldn't leave it there it's now in a place of honor at our local Vet Center. Every once in a while I think about how we joked that the other guy's parents obviously couldn't spell when it came to first names. Rest in peace, my fallen friend. Your memory lives on with many of us Wolfhounds... KO the RTO

My Brother, My Hero
Loosing my oldest brother at 10 years old was unimaginable, especially as each member of or family was told, I will never forget the agony in the hearts of everyone when hearing such horrific news but I always rememembered the onething that would calm the tears and would raise sadden faces was when it was realized "You are a Hero". I always remember you as my bother, but most of all I remember you as a "Hero", just as everyone who served should be looked up to as a Hero. I miss you everyday and thank you for your ultimite sacrafice in fighting for our country and you will never be forgotton in my heart or by those you fought to protect. You are my HERO and I Love You, Your Baby Sister, Libbie

My Big Brother, I miss you. You are always in my thoughts, and in my heart forever. You are MY HERO. Today is Memorial Day, another year gone by, and even though today is a special "Day of Remembrance", know that you are honored in my heart everyday. You were always good to me. My favorite memory of you was when I was ten years old, and got to be my big brother's shadow. I remember most that you let me hang out with you, and go on your dates with you, not because I had to, but because you wanted me to. I Love you. I don't know when, but someday, we'll be together again. Aaron
