To Charles, ther isn't a day that goes by in my life that I don't think of you. On Octber 12, 1970 0n or about 11:30 am, we came under intense enemy fire. I was severly wounded and you came to my side. I remember you holding me in your arms and telling me "I'm not going to let you die!" I looked into your eyes and saw that your eyes were filled with tears. I never got the chance to thank you for saving my life.  I would love to hear from a family member , so I may share my thoughts and some pictures I have of you. I just want you to know, that until the day I join you, I will think of you every day. God Bless You My Brother, Wolfhound
