Never Forgotten
I was only 8 years old the last time I saw you and your buddies having a going away party for you. I remember you guys turned the Jeep over in front of Shanks Store and flipped it back on the wheels and took off. Maybe you guys had one too many. I remember the bad news and your wake and funeral. The rifles being shot and the flag being folded. The hurt on your Mothers face and your sisters. Its been 42 years and you have not been forgotten. Your sacrifice was great and will always be remembered.
