Where to start? Guess to his little brother "Jack" please contact me I have many Photo's of LEE. He served in the 1st Platoon of Co. A, 5/46th, 198th LIB. Lee was the BEST point man in our unit. Even our Company Commander knew him by name. Now 37 years later and I still see your smiling face. To have known Lee was to have liked him. He was a friend to me and many, many others. He died doing what he did best, walking point for the rest of us. He was a proud and honourable man. Just the kind of guy that would take a bullet for you. Can't tell you what a honor it was just to have served with him, much less to have been his friend. "FOR HE WHO SHEDS HIS BLOOD WITH ME SHALL BE MY BROTHER - WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE" ....Rest in peace my brother.

Time passes, but the memories don't
One of my sons bear the name of Lee Hamilton Harra. Lee and I served together, along with several men, as trainees in an Infantry AIT unit in Tigerland, Ft. Polk, Louisiana. I remember distinctly James Heaser whom I have lost contact with after Vietnam. Along with three other men we took weekend passes together to Lake Charles, LA or Leesville. Friendships formed in an atmosphere where there is a likelihood that friendships can be broken through death is one that is feared by all men who formed a brotherhood as they begin life in the military. I was informed of Lee's death through the Pacific Stars and Stripes, a military newspaper that list battle casualties each week. Mrs. Martha Harra, Lee's mother, also wrote me informing me of my friends death, but I was never able to complete any correspondence that I attempted to write. My son, Lee is Learning Disabled which I believe may be attributed to exposure to defoiliant chemicals (Agent Orange) that was used extensively in Vietnam, but although he has his limits he is an able young man, and is now seventeen years old. I am willing to learn how to correspond in respect to Lee's honor and also to his family and mine. I had only one photograph of Lee, but that photo has been claimed by time.
