I was just thinking, of a time, long ago, when we were, all, just kids and VietNam was just, a far away place, that no one, knew much about. Although, there has, always been talk, about the good and bad, of that, far away place, Paul was, doing his part (good or bad) and I never heard, a word, of complaint. I'm not sure, why I'm thinking, of him today, maybe it's because, of the anniversary coming up, who knows, but I miss him, after all these years, after we have, all grown up. I'm sure, no one, will read this, but maybe, Paul will.Gary-brother

Paul, my good friend, I, remember the day, you came home to escourt, your cousin, Larry's body, home, from Viet Nam. Little did we know, that you'd, be next. I remember, taking you across, the bridge to start, hitch hiking back, to your base and seeing you, in my rear, view mirror, as I left you, standing there. I cried, you know? I felt in my heart, that I would never, see you again! Then, not long after, I attended, your funeral. After all these years, my friend, you, are not forgotten, I thank you, for your service to this country, as well as all, of the others, that have given, their lives and fight, in the name, of freedom. I know, you are resting, in the arms, of God. Connie
