Lonnie, my dearest husband, this is to honor you.

You gave the ultimate sacrifice for your country. When duty called you were there. You didn't complain. You are a true American hero. You have never been forgotten nor ever will ever be. I wish you could have known your daughter Kimberly Jo. I wish I could have seen you hold her in your arms.

War robbed us of a lot of things. You died in your hometown buddy's arms - Randy Maples. It brings me comfort to know he was there for you, another American hero who made it home, thank God.

Thanks to all the American heroes who fought and died for our country and for those who made it home - you all are true American heroes.

Janie and Lonzo Moran
