Gary, the Brownnell boys and I, played and rode, the schoolbus together. I remember talking with him, just before he went, for induction and saying, that he really didn't, want to go. He was a kind and gentle sole, who would not, hurt a fly. I think, rather than take a life, he would have gave his and I will, never forget him.

The young dead soldiers do not speak.
Nevertheless, they are heard in the still houses:
who has not heard them?
They have a silence that speaks for them at night
and when the clock counts.
They say: We were young. We have died.
Remember us.
They say: We have done what we could
but until it is finished it is not done.
They say: We have given our lives but until it is finished
no one can know what our lives gave.
They say: Our deaths are not ours: they are yours,
they will mean what you make them.
They say: Whether our lives and our deaths were for
peace and a new hope or for nothing we cannot say,
it is you who must say this.
We leave you our deaths. Give them their meaning.
We were young, they say. We have died; remember us.
by Archibald MacLeish,
1892-1982, American Poet

As a neighbor of 7 years old at the time Gary was killed, I remember the time on the bus when someone told me that he had died. On this Memorial day, 2007, I wish to offer my honor and respect for the gentleman that helped keep my neighborhood safe. God bless you.

“You are Remembered”
Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. “He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!

Thank you, for your ultimate sacrifice and for that sir, you will, never be forgotten. You were, to young to vote, but old enough, to DIE. "SHAME IS A COUNTRY, THAT HAS NO HERO'S, BUT SHAMEFUL IS A COUNTRY, THAT HAS THEM AND FORGETS, ABOUT THEM." GOB BLESS, THE USA!
