It has been, almost 40yrs., since my Father, Michael O Cassidy was killed, in action, in Vietnam. I was 1, year, 8, months old, when he was, killed and have, no memory, of him. That has been, the hardest thing, to deal with, through the years. I have his Bronze Star, Silver Star, Purple Heart, Flag and a few, photos. I could not have asked, for a much, better life and I have no doubt, that he has been watching, over me. My heart, goes out to those families, that have, lost brave sons and daughters, fathers and mothers. I can, relate to how, you feel.

MY COUNTRY'S FLAG CRIED the flag bowed it's bars and wept starry tears as it hung at half-mast for a soldier's years. another youth it had called and another youth had died. I stood and i watched as my country's flag cried. it clothed the drab coffin in it's red, white, and blue, silently protecting the contents for the comfort of a few. it brought strength to some, to others, bitter pride. but as mourners filed by, my country's flag cried. as it rode to the field where the soldier was laid away, the flag recalled the pledge that he used to stand and say, but to war he went and to keep that pledge, he tried. as the guns fired their last salute, my country's flag cried. as taps rang out, it was folded with care, for the soldier's soul a chaplin whispered a prayer. he asked god for peace in this world to abide, and in a grieving mother's arms my country's flag cried!

I feel everyone here needs some acknowledgement of their ultimate sacrifice for our country. You died much too young. You had a life that deserved many more years. You left behind people who loved you and who, I imagine still feel the pain of your loss to this day. I hope they have comfort in knowing you are at rest and that they will someday see you again in a much better place.
Your courage and efforts in Viet Nam will never be forgotten in my heart and in a multitude of others who have the utmost respect and honor for the soldiers who lost their lives there.
in Peace always
