My Uncle
Posted on 5/30/15 - by Lloyd Woods lloydnwoods@gmail.com
 
Roger was my uncle. The night before he died I saw him on NBC TV in a news segment about water being delivered to the troops. The next day, Easter, I gladly shared that with my aunt, his widow, little knowing he was likely dead at that point. I wrote him a letter that day.

Never Forgotten
I trained with Roger, state side and shipped out, for Viet Nam, at the same, time. We went, to different units. It's been a long time, but Roger, is not forgotten. I have thought of him, many times through, the years and was thinking of him, today. Roger, you will always be fondly, remembered.

Insanity
I was with Roger when he was killed. I knew him only a few weeks. He was the driver of our armored personnel carrier, and though he had arrived a few months before me he had the air of an experienced veteran. He was friendly and very willing to show me the ropes. He talked a lot about his wife back home.
On Easter morning we were involved in an intense fire fight. When the track commander was wounded, Roger did not hesitate to take his place in the cupola behind the .50 caliber machine gun. Moments later he was instantly killed by a bullet to the head. A future lost, and a family devastated by the insanity of war
