Paul Barkley Bowman is on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Panel 14W Line 083.

Paul, Thinking of you this Memorial Day. I saluted the flag in front of my home, in your honor, this morning. I know we would still be friends, and would have kept in contact if you had made it through your tour of duty. Every Memorial Day, I read two letters I had received from you while I was in Vietnam. One of the letters was written before you left for your tour, and the other letter was written from in-country, just 24 days before the helicopter you were in was shot down. See you "up there" later, buddy.
