a baby brother dear to my heart
first My brothers birthdate is wrong and I almost didn't find him. He caused this when he got out of high school he changed his age to get a better job. When he was called up dad asked him if he wanted him to change it to keep him out. He said "no dad, I am going to do my part sooner or later." he was over there 6 weeks (maybe when he was killed. His birthdate is April 21st, 1940. He was amazed at how the children had to live. and wrote letters to my own telling them how wonderful they had it here. I still have those letters. As his niece said he loved Mustang cars. Though he has been gone all these many years I still miss him. His wife found out after he left she was pregnant. A little girl Malina Jo Stephens was born the next years but she lived only 3 days and died also. They are both buried in Calvary National Cem in Marion County Lebanon Ky. he will live on in our hearts forever My father & Mother grieved so over him till their death. Now they both have gone to be with him God bless and keep you Little brother.

No girl could ever be more proud of an Uncle than I. You were truly the kind of man many only dream of being. Tall, dark and handsome with a heart of pure gold .You gave all so that little girls like myself could grow up safe, blessed and warm. Many don't know the story of how you really died but I know it was just another feather in the wings God gave you here on earth. I will always feel a special connection with the one who held me so close to his heart with love ,the one who didn't want to ever let me go. My FOREVER HERO! Over the years I have watched in silence as so many who love you tell stories of your life and I hold dearly small memorabilia that my father has given me with great trust to care for in your memory, but no story, no item can begin to fill the loss in my heart alone yet others who forever until we meet will yearn for what may have been if only such a great life were not shortened. Those children who you cared for in Vietnam somehow will surely gain strength from the angel that once held them. I say to all who are strangers and read this- records are only the beginning of what truly makes the story of those who gave ALL! My Uncle the pride and joy of his mother Nellie Stephens was born in Strunk county Kentucky on April 21,1940 and his true given name Clyde Dorsey Stephens forgive me for letting out your little secret but Clyde Jackson did sound more manly so know one blames you. Now there is just a little of what records can change about people but certainly not who-they are. The light hearted side of things are stories of my uncle and his love for his Mustangs. I, too am a hot rod heart uncle and share in your love and respect for wonderful rides. I have read old love letters from you to others, letters to mom and even a few notes home from the teacher these are wonderful little bits of this great man I will dream up thoughts of how you must have been. In my mind you are some part of what makes me who I am today. I, too love children and share what I believe was a gift from the man who still holds me close to his heart and never let me go. THANK YOU MY FRIEND ,my HERO, my UNCLE I LOVE YOU! Nellie Mae

Never Forgotten

Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul....and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

From all your "Band of Nam Brothers"
