Richard Akin, for you the darkness ended that tragic day of September 3 in Vietnam - I as a stranger, humbly bow my head and remember you today and hope that one day those in your country that forsook you, will also kneel in humbleness.

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.
