Hello, I just wanted to drop you a line and introduce myself. My Dad was stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington, with your Brother. He told me the story of Hubert hitchhiking home when I was a young boy (didn't he hitchhike home for Christmas 1966?), and thinks he recalls it took 4 days for the trip. My Dad was transferred out to Missile & Munitions school in Alabama after a brief period, but does remember your Brother for certain. My Dad can still recall asking your Brother where he was from. When your Brother replied 'Turtletown, TN', my Dad remembers saying 'Turtletown?, where the heck is that?!', to which your Brother replied 'Just down the road from Ducktown!'. It's also funny how life can be circular. My Dad was able to visit Ducktown and Turtletown 40 years later, back in 2007 while he was traveling for work. He was doing business in Copper Hill, TN at the time. He made some inquiries about your Brother, because he was not aware at the time that your Brother had made the ultimate sacrifice for our great Country. At any rate, I just thought I'd touch base with you. Your Brother was a true Hero. I sincerely hope you and your entire family have a wonderful, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Regards, Thomas J. Harvey

I miss you
I wrote a request before that anyone who had served with my brother Hubert to please contact me. A fellow soldier with the email MULEDEER wrote to me but my e-mail has changed and I have lost his. If you read this please contact me again. Again if anyone else served with my brother while he was on active duty please contact me. My sisters and brothers still miss him.

“You are Remembered”
Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. "He which hath no stomach to this fight let him depart. But we in it shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless You for your Sacrifice!!!

I was ten years old when my brother, Hubert, was killed. I remember the funny things he used to do when he was still at home. I remember when he hitchhiked all the was from Washington State to Tennessee. It was so good to have him home. I still remember the day the Army officers came to tell us he had been killed. I know that it almost broke our dad's heart. He left behind two older brothers, two older sisters, three younger sisters, and Daddy. I know that he is in Heaven because God called him home. But sometimes, I wonder, what it would have been like to get to know him as I was growing up. If someone reads this, who may have served with him, at any duty station, I really would like to hear from you.

Hubert, Although we never met, I just want you to know you are not forgotten. You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for what you believed in. Sleep well my friend, and thank you for protecting the freedoms we enjoy today
