I personally never knew Gary, I am too young. Upon researching my family I was given this information. Although I did not know him, he would have been my cousin, and obviously is an American hero.

I would like to hear from anyone who served with my little brother Gary Hall. This is his older brother, Ron, I also served a tour in Vietnam.

This is just to say that I miss Gary every day of my life. I also served in Vietnam before him so I know what he had to deal with. I wish that he never had to do me one better but he did. You see, he gave his life for his country and I didn't, so he really outdid me this time. That is the way it is and I have to live with it. I MISS HIM SO MUCH. May we be together again up yonder.
