On Your Angel Day
I don’t know where to begin to express my gratitude to someone so courageous, but I will try.

I want to thank you for taking up the call to serve your country so honorably and I want to thank you for the ultimate sacrifice that any man can make – your precious life. Please know that these mere words come from my heart and I mean ever one of them.

No matter how others may feel you did not die in vain, nor was the war senseless. You and your brothers-in-arms whose names are engraved on The Wall have been and will be an influence for good in this country. You and the others have influenced the youth of our country – this is shown by the remembrances these young people have left for all of you on this site. You all have touch a cord in them and they will remember your sacrifice all of their lives; so, your deaths are not in vain.

I am proud of you and the others and can hardly wait for the day when I will be able to meet you and give my thanks to you all in person.

You courageous men have touched me to my very soul with your selfless actions and I will spend the rest of my day honoring you all in whatever way that I can. Thank you for the bottom of my heart!!

On this your Angel Day I leave this quote for you it’s from the movie We Were Soldiers:

To fallen soldiers, let us sing,
Where no rockets fly or bullets wing
Our broken brothers let us bring
To the Mansions of the Lord

No more bleeding, no more fight
No prayers pleading through the night,
Just divine embrace, eternal light
In the Mansions of the Lord

Where no mothers cry and no children weep
We will stand and guard though the angels sleep
Through the ages safely keep
The Mansions of the Lord

It's Sunday Afternoon/Tropic Lightning
It is Sunday afternoon and I am looking at the list of men who died on this date.

Steven Edward Collier, home of record: Branford, Connecticut.

He was a member of the United States Army, 25th Infantry Division/Tropic Lightning.

Steven was a 19 year old Sgt E-5. That's pretty impressive!

He was Killed In Action On October 27, 1968 in Binh Duong, Viet Nam.

He was not married, and I have no idea who his parents were, or if he had brothers and sisters.

I am hopeful someday his family and friends will find this site - and leave him a message.

Till then, Steven, God keep you.
