Had a guy in my HS class of 69 came home and shot himself, a guy I shared an apt with was shot 7 times, he was a head case. 3 months with him and I moved out. The casualties are often not just deaths. I cannot properly express my gratitude for the fallen!

My best friend all my years growing up, spent 13 months in Nam, came home, got married, had a kid, started college and died in a car wreck driving to school. He was 22.

His mother was 50 when he was born and she never knew that he went over. He had a buddy at Ft Benning who sent the mail from his mom to him and his mail to his mother. She was in poor health and he did not want her to worry.
