Thrill Hill
Posted on 5/21/16 - by Karen Ross
Loading up, in, the car, you, Brother Joe, Sisters Patricia, Loretta, Leona, Brenda, driving out, to Sanford Hill Road, all of us high on, Simply Life, and when we jumped the hill, oh, the pit of our stomachs, just turned upside down. Us screaming, laughing. Then turn around, and do it again.

A Friend, That Will, Never Be Forgotten
You were, a great friend, to a little boy and I looked up, to you. We said our Good-Bye's, in a cotton field, right off the Finger, Tn., road. You said, you were going, to be gone, for a while, the Army, had called upon you, to serve. I missed you Larry and picking cotton, without my Big Buddy, beside me, was sad. You said, you would be, back and you did, but I didn't know, it would be, in a body bag. You were a special friend, to a small boy, growing up, in those Tennessee, cotton fields and 40, years later, I still think of you, often. Especially, when I go by, that old, cotton field and remember back. You paid the ultimate price, for your Country, Family and Friends and left, an impression, on me, that will, never be forgotten. God Bless you, Larry and I know, we will meet, again one day, soon. In Loving Memory, of PFC., Robert Larry Chandler, of Finger, Tn.. Rickey Smith, Belton, SC..

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!

Thank You
As part of the Gridley High School posting project, students at my school are posting remembrances to soldiers such as you, who have given their lives for this country. The price you paid was great, but the recipients of the gift, that gift of sacrifice, example, and freedom, which you paid for, are grateful. I am one of those recipients, and I would personally like to say, thank you. You will not be forgotten

Thank You
I am leaving remembrances as part of a class project of Gridley High School, located in Gridley Illinois for random veterans thanking them for the great contribution they have given our nation. I regret that I do not have the time to leave more remembrances for our great men and women, like you, who gave their lives for our country in the Vietnam War. I thank you for your courage and example for future patriots
