I continue to cherish the fun we had while washing dishes at Camp Skoglund. Bill loved to put those thumb tacks on my stool, and squirt the campers when they passed by the kitchen window. Your sacrifice to our country is not forgotten, even these many years later.

I will always remember your smiles and laughter as we attended Brayton Elementary School back in the late 1950's. You were always a good friend and a fine person to be with. I will always remember your friendship and generosity - you never met a stranger. Thank you for all that you did to support the United States of America and for the cause of Freedom. Someday I will see you again too! Ronnie

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.

1892-1982, American Poet

?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!!!

Back in 1976 at Brayton Elementary School, Summit, NJ I was in Mr. Geckler's 6th grade class. I got caught looking at the teacher's old grade books. I just so happened to turn to William Francisco's grades! Instead of being mad, Mr. Geckler solemnly told me that William was a nice kid who was killed in Viet Nam. I never knew William or his family, but want him to know that I've always thought of him, and 24 years later haven't forgotten. I hope we never forget our veteran's, living or dead. I just want the Francisco's to know how sorry I am about William, and to William I just want to say "Thank you for doing your duty, I'm sorry you couldn't come home. We all love you and thank you".

Thank You
I am a senior at Gridley High School. I just wanted you to know that I deeply appreciate your sacrifice to the United States. As a person of an age close to yours I am especially thankful that you could give up your life for our country. You had much of your life ahead of you and yet you sacrificed your life
