Served, with Sgt., Anderson
Grass Valley, CA., 95949, USA
I was with Sgt., Anderson, the day he was killed. It was only his third day, in the field. I was the driver on the tank, he was commanding. I received a Silver Star, that day in August, of 1968, as an 19, year old, PFC., but he was the hero, not me. He paid, the greatest sacrifice.

Never Forgotten
ALWAYS REMEMBERED

Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul....and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

From all your "Band of Nam Brothers
