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!!!

Sgt., Clark, was the best!
First Sgt., Clark, was the best, that the Army, had to offer. I was with him, for his entire tour. He did not, have to be, in the field, he did not have, to die. He died, 10, feet, from me. His loss, would have been harder, for me to handle, than it was, except for the fact, that the same ineptitude, that killed him, got me almost killed, 30, minutes later. I will explain, this to family, only, if any of those care. I'am proud, to have served, under his leadership!

You, Sir, Have Not Been Forgotten!

I had the opportunity to visit, The Vietnam Memorial Wall, in Washington DC.. As I searched and found, the names of my friends, classmates, neighbors, etched, into the smooth, black face, of the Wall, an extraordinary, outpouring of emotion, became so strong. I was so overwhelmed, with sorrow and pain, that I could not, hold back the tears, for those heroes and their families, who lost so much. Though, my visit to the Wall, was a few years ago, I feel that I left a piece, of my heart there. To honor, those who died, in the Vietnam War and to say thank you, I created a small tribute, to those heroes. Please click, on the link above, to view, memorial website.
