Gramps, thought a lot about you lately. I'll always remember the way you would grin when joining the group. I was on R&R when it happened and when I returned your stuff was gone. helleva way to lose a friend forever.

we were in the same platoon
Russ Williams was in D Troop, 3/4 Cavalry, 25th Infantry Div. Centaurs aero-rifle platoon. If I remember correctly, Russ was shot while being inserted or extracted by one of our choppers. He was a nice guy. Rest in peace, brother. You are not forgotten. Jim B. We were both from Illinois.

Thank You
Dear Russell,
I am writing you to commend you for the great service that you gave to your country. Through your sacrifice, the United States lost one of its brave fighters. You are not a replaceable person. You are unique and you had your own story, your own loves, and your own family. My greatest gratitude goes to you, whom was willing to give up your uniqueness for the betterment of all mankind. Thank you
