THIS IS A TRIBUTE TO THE MEMORY OF ROY STRINGER:
I went today to see the Wall and found my brothers name, Among the ones who gave their all, their reason all the same. So we at home could safely stay, our freedom never fall, We owe so much to them today whose names are on the Wall. I cried a flood of tears today for each name I saw there, Wished to myself to find a way to let them know I care. So here I sit with pad and pen "America---stand tall" let's all give thanks today to those whose names are on the Wall. And now for you who did come home I'm gratful for you all, And I thank God for He alone kept your name off of the Wall.
Cause of Death: Multiple Fragmentation Wounds/Mine.
