I want to say thank you for giving so freely the ultimate sacrifice of your life. I received your MIA bracelet back when I was a little girl. My father gave it to me. I went to the Memorial Wall years later as a young teenager and found your name. For the majority of my 33 years of life, I have worn your name around my wrist. I've prayed countless prayers for both you and your family. I am grateful you have been returned to your family and you now rest in peace in the land you gave your life to protect. You Sir, will never be forgotten by me. I am eternally thankful for your sacrifice. May God bless your family & fellow Marines.

We were all very proud of you Greg and always will be
Greg (Frog) Copenhaver was a dear friend to our family.He was my older brother's (Charles D. Henson) classmate and close friend.There was eight of us kids in our family but greg had been around us as long as I could remember.He was like one of us to my parents and we all loved him.He always had a positive attitude and was determined to make it in whatever he did.He was one proud soldier when he made it in the marines.He wrote letters to my mother and myself telling us about what he was seeing over there in Okinawa,Siagon,Phillipine Ilands.My mother really got worried about him then ,from his letters but I read those letters now and he didn't seem one bit worried about what he was doing or where he was.He was very brave and very proud to be a marine.I was there at the memorial service in 1975 at the age of 15 and I was there at the funeral when they brought him home.It sure was heartwrenching but I was so thankful that they got him home.My heart aches for Mary,Doug,and the rest of the family.I want to end this letter with the words that an old veteran said at the funeral to the casket.YOU WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN A Friend David Henson
