RE: Your bio
You're welcome. I photographed many veterans graves today, despite the oppressive heat here in Chicago.

You have placed a picture of him on the site. I would like to use it in my Husbands family tree. This was his first cousin; may I use it for our personal tree?

LCpl Rojelio Bocanegra
I want to "Thank You" so very much for sharing Rojelio Bocanegra's photo with us. I have been searching online hoping to get at least a High School photograph of this wonderful hero. I knew Rojelio as a child in Cystal City. He was my brother's friend and would visit our house often. His father Erasmo was my Godfather, and our families were good friends. My family left Crystal City in 1954, but came and visited the
Bocanegra family in 1956. That was the last time I saw Rojelio and his family. When we heard about his death my parents were devastated. I called his parents and talked to his mother Maria, and its a conversation that I will never forget. I wish that I had know Rojelio better, all I know is that he came from a wonderful and very loving family.

Richard Ray Henling
Hi Sel,
I am writing about the photograph you posted on Memorial #12796191 for Richard Ray Henling. It looks like a photo from a Marine Corps Recruit Training album. Did you know Richard? Do you know which Platoon he graduated with? Richard enlisted as part of Platoon 145 - The Arizona Platoon - on 29 Jun 1965, however he did not graduate with us, being transferred to another platoon before we graduated. I believe he served with 3rd Recon in Viet Nam. I served with 1st Recon, 1966-1967. Anything you can share with me will be appreciated. Thank you for your service, my fellow Marine. Semper Fi.

I was wondering if you were aware you have the identical photo of this man on his memorial twice. It looks like perhaps you hit it twice inadvertently. Memorial #118118092

Thank you for photo
I want to thank you for adding the photo of Terry Glen Smith to his obituary. He was my friend in high school and I never knew what had happened to him until I found him on FindAGrave. The photo takes me back over 50 years to a good friend and good times. Thank you again.

Your duty
My Brother-in-arms,

After posting my message to you, I returned to your Bio.

Something within your message caught my eye, immediately.

You express "guilt" within your Bio. A guilt that states to me, you continue to suffer from our Vietnam War experiences.

There is no doubt within my mind, that you did all you could have done while doing what you did within and separated from the Vietnam War. Your training given to those you came in contact with, was all you could have given them.

The giving of yourself to those that you did train by way of your expertise was your duty, nothing else. You did all you could have done, so give up any lingering guilt you have regarding the Vietnam War.

Hold your head high, with dignity, because you certainly earned every bit of that character trait.

May our LORD God keep you and yours safe for many years to come. And may you and yours also keep the real purpose of Christmas in mind during this joyful time of the year.

Merry Christmas,

Brotherhood
My brother-in-arms,

We stand together, because of our actions in and out of the Vietnam War.

Thank you for your service and sacrifices given. As a Vietnam Veteran I am more than aware that we all paid the sacrifices we did, for the sake of honor, dignity, and respect. Which I found through the course of years, the same was not returned to a large majority of us, by those we paid that sacrifice for; the citizens of this onece great nation.

Thank you also for taking the picture of the headstone of Captain Glenn Dill Mann, buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, and then posting it.

I served with the posthumously promoted Captain Mann with VMO-6, MAG-36, 1st MAW, Ky Ha, Republic of South Vietnam. He was a wonderful Marine Corps Captain, man, father.

I had the distinct honor to speak directly to his once wife, in her aged years. She received my call to her with the grace and dignity of any Marine Corps wife and provided me all she could remember of her late husband, without hesitation. She and Captain Mann had several young children, when the Captain received his fatal wound, which killed him almost instantaneously, from a .51 caliber enemy round. He only said six words, then immediately died.

Salute to you for paying homage to all that paid their supreme sacrifice for the sake of freedom, honor, dignity, and respect.

Thank you for adding the photo of Rogelio to this site. I am not related to Rogelio however; he is the brother of my uncle Ricardo, who also served in the Marine Corps (Korean War) I've linked to our family genealogy Facebook page so that others in the Bocanegra family may find it and read about how this man served his country.

Thanks again,
