This is just to say a little about the uncle I never knew but know a lot about.

My name is Michael D. Fogle Jr. I first learned about my uncle as a small boy. My father told me about him and I am very proud of what my uncle did for me and the rest of the Americans. When I was a Junior in High School (the same school Lary and his brothers and sisters went to) I got an assignment in history class - I had to write a report on someone I thought was a big inspiration to me. Most kids would write about one of their parents or friends but I chose to write about my uncle Lary and his life and accomplishments.

I used visual aids I got from the library and the key to my report was not only the fact and history I collected by talking to family members and friends of Lary but I brought in a guest speaker who told about my uncle's life and how he was with everyone aroud him. He enlisted in the Army on July 13, 1965, and was killed December 20, 1965. He was 17 when he entered the Army. He was killed four days after his 18th birthday.

This is a little about my uncle and my feelings for him. If I could tell him anything right now I would say "Thank You - it is Americans like you that make it possible for all of us today" and I love you. If anyone that served with Lary in the service reads this please email me I would like to know more about him. Email me at . Thanks.
