I didn't know Michael. But I can understand what he went through. I am currently learning about the Vietnam War in history and I am thinking of joining the Army to be a proud member and to serve in memory of all the fallen heros in all our wars and for the freedom of our country.

When I was a little kid and visiting Millie and Leo's (Michael's parents) house I remember looking at Michael's picture (the one posted). His image has always stuck with me, even til this day. I searched for his name on the internet and found this web site. I know Millie and Leo have passed but they will always be in my thoughts ... just like Michael.
