Today I toured the Memorial Wall and found my grandfather's name. My mother, Gail Brown Fields, has always told me so much about him, and I was super thrilled to have his name rubbed on paper for me. My mother is a triplet; 2 boys, Gable & Charles Brown, to complete her set; all born and raised in Williamston, NC, but currently living in different cities. Keiya Fields, Keiya.fields@gmail.com.

Every day I miss you I wish I could have grown up with you. I have so much to share with you especially my family, you would love each and everyone I LOVE YOU!!! Gloria I. Brown.

Lonnie, I think about you everyday and all the "Guys" from the 2nd 18th. I'm sure your wisdom saved my life. Your guidance as the Platoon Sgt saved many lives. May You Always Rest in Peace. Richard Billings, candlestick1st@yahoo.com
