Last Known Activity

You named me when I was born. Mom and Dad could not agree on my name, so they consulted you. At four and half years old you named me. You were my only brother, a wonderful big brother my hero always. I always assumed you would return home safely. I have only learned to live with the sadness of losing you, we just learned how survive after your death. Losing you changed life for all of us. I've tried to live a life you would be proud of, named one of my sons after you. I visit your grave every Memorial Day. I miss you and believe I will never rest peacefully while I'm alive wondering what happened on August 19, 1970, the Army was not willing to give any details about your death. So, mystery plagues me, but I do my best to survive and make you proud. You're forever my Hero.
