'You Are Remembered'
We went to Washington DC and visited The Wall last month. Our Battalion held a special remembrance ceremony for all of our fallen Manchus. There were about a hundred of us there. You would have like it. We also had a bagpiper present, and a 3-man Manchu Honor Guard from Fort Lewis, WA, along with several of their senior Officers and NCO's. They brought along our Regimental Battalion Colors, with all its Battle Streamers attached. The piper played 'Amazing Grace', our old-Battalion Chaplain held memorial services, there were several speakers, and all 425+ names of our fallen were read aloud. During the ceremony I left a Manchu Coin for you, my friend. You haven't been forgotten Doc Dunphy and I are 'Keep(ing) Up the Fire' for you. A few years back, We went to Tennessee to see Ronnie Massengill, found your brother, and to paid our respects for you at your grave site.

I lost my best friend and cousin on that dreary day in October. He graduated from Ottway High School in Greene County, Tennessee. The beloved son of Don and Mildred Ricker Neal. Charles was kind and giving and Aunt Mildred grieved until the day she died over her youngest son getting killed. Some gave it all...and Charles was one of them...but, he comes from a long line of Sgt. Elbert Kinser that gave it all during WWII in Japan. I miss you still Charles and hope to see you one day soon! Love you! Cuz Thelma Waddell Wisecarver
