To my brother, my buddy, my best friend who has been missed greatly since January 1968. You will never be forgotten for your bravery, your love of country and your compassion for the people you tried to free.

Your heroic actions when you saved Vietnamese troops was remembered by the medal from the Vietnamese government and only those who know of this action are the ones who remember.

Your kindness and love for your little sister has made me a better person. I know you have always watched over me, you are my guardian angel. I've been to the Wall and have rubbings of your name but that can never replace you in my life. You are always in my heart.

Your little sister, Lynn
