To My Friend

I'll always remember the conversations we had. The flight we took going to Viet Nam. When I came home you were the first person I asked about. Then I was told. God bless you and may you rest in peace



I have been looking for some information on bowman, fought with him in Vietnam. I remember the day his track blew up with a 250 pound bomb with a shape charge at the bottom of l.z liz late one evening coming back from the field. He is the only friend I can remember having in 'Nam. He taught me all about to be safe and always talked about home.

We went, to Vietnam together
419, Franklin Drive, Williams, Calif., 95987, USA
It took, a long time
Paul and I went, into the army, the same day. We went, to Fort Ord and then, to Fort Polk. Then back home, for a thirty, day, leave and then off, to Vietnam. We flew over, on the same, plane and then, to the 90's, camp, waiting, to see what outfit, we would be assigned. I had hoped, that we would both, make it back. I didn't find out, that Paul had died until, I came back. Vietnam, has taken it's toll, on me and many other, veterans. It's hard to believe, that Paul, is gone. But he, will always be, a hero.

When Berkeley California built a memorial to those who died in the Vietnam War locals felt that Paul Bowman Jr should be included because he went to Berkeley Schools and was known to lots of people although a resident of a neighboring town.

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER
It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die

God Bless A GOOD MAN
Little did I know that when we were care-free students that fate would take such a turn that I would be posting this message approximately 36 years after I last seen you (graduation).

I offer my belated condolences to your family.

To the family: You raised a great, and mannerable son

My heart is still aching
It is so sad there are no remembrances for Paul Bowman. He was the best friend I had in Vietnam. We were in C Troop 3/4 Cavalry. We talked almost every night in the short periods we had before it was time to start guard duty. He talked of his plans when he got back home and of his girlfriend. I saw her picture a hundred times. He was a big guy, soft spoken, and I think of him on a regular basis. He just wanted to get his job done and get back home. I wish there was a way to tell his family that there is someone out here who had the highest regard for Paul. His death was the only time I cried in country, and the last time I would allow myself to have such a friend. I can be contacted at jstev846@jps.net in Marysville, California. I fervently hope that his family can find out that Paul Bowman did not die an ignominious death. He has lived these last thirty-two years in my mind
