2Lt Mrdjenovich, you are never forgotten even though the painful memories of April 21st 1968 day never leave me. You are never forgotten and as long as those who love you still breath you are never really gone. Waymon Lovell, email@example.com.
Chuck, we went to OCS together, both assigned to Ft Hood where we and a bunch of other young Lieutenants were room mates in Kileen, TX and borrowed each others clothes and cars. I wondered what ever happened to you after several units at Ft. Hood were levied for replacement officers. Your ultimate sacrifice for others and your dedication to your country is something not many understand you will be missed brother. J.J. McMasters, JJMACKINV@aol.com.
He was an Alumni of Toul American High School in Toul France, class of 1966.
Charlie, I remember meeting my new French cousin for the first time. You were new to this country, and new to this American language, but that posed no barriers for you. Your ultimate sacrifice for your adopted country deserves the ultimate gratitude. I, and the rest of your cousins, miss you and remember. Sheila Thompson.
