I Lost, a brother, in arms and a blood cousin. I, have missed you!
Roger, I remember, the great times, at Nanny and Pa's. The food, the family and the fun. I never knew, we served there, at the same time. Now I know, why your mother, Aunt LaVern, cried, when I talked to her, after I came back. She said, I sounded just like you. I arrived, in March 1966, I returned to the states, in April 1967. I was with, the 2nd, Bat., 1st, Reg., 1st, Marine Division. I pray some, of your family reads this, so we can reconnect. David, my brother served, there also, in the Marine Corps. Our families, have always been, ready, to serve this country. You gave your life, to save others. God has, a special place for you, in heaven. Your Loving Cousin. Wayne

Thank you, forever brave one
I want you to know, how much, my family and I appreciate, your sacrifice and the sacrifice, of your loved, ones. My father served, in Korea and Vietnam. Because, of you and men and women, like you, our country is, the most powerful, nation, on this earth. I have, always been a proud American, never disrespecting, the decision our government officials, made, in sending our loved ones, over, to a foreign country, in order to assist those, persecuted, by other, more powerful governments. I wanted you to know, especially, on this day, how much you, are still loved, by this country and especially, your family. May, God bless your loved ones, still here, with us. May, they know of his eternal, love and mercy. Thank you and your family, for making this, the United States, of America. We salute you!
