The young dead soldiers do not speak.
Nevertheless, they are heard in the still houses:
who has not heard them?
They have a silence that speaks for them at night
and when the clock counts.
They say: We were young. We have died.
Remember us.
They say: We have done what we could
but until it is finished it is not done.
They say: We have given our lives but until it is finished
no one can know what our lives gave.
They say: Our deaths are not ours: they are yours,
they will mean what you make them.
They say: Whether our lives and our deaths were for
peace and a new hope or for nothing we cannot say,
it is you who must say this.
We leave you our deaths. Give them their meaning.
We were young, they say. We have died remember us.
by Archibald MacLeish,
1892-1982, American Poet

My brother went to school, with him
35616, 42nd, Ave., S., Roy, WA., 98580, USA
Gone, but not forgotten
Ron was, in my brother's class, I being 3, years, behind him. Ron's little brother, was in a couple classes, behind me, but I, knew them both. Ron was, a rough sort of guy, openly, but he was, a kind and gentle guy. Don't know, what else to say, but I know, he is thought, of and missed often, yet, still.

Fellow Eagle
THE BROTHERHOOD, OF EAGLES, SALUTES YOU. I know the perils, you faced and the strength, you possessed. You stood tall, answered your country's call and gave all, that you had, for your brothers and country. You were part, of the greatest unit, ever and I'm proud, to be of the same Brotherhood, that you served, with honor and courage. You, are not forgotten, nor will you, ever be forgotten, as you, will remain forever, in the memory, of every Screaming Eagle, that has Been, There and Done That. We will all meet again, when all, of the Eagles, are called home. Continue, to stand tall my brother, for you are still, in Eagle Country and now soaring, with the elite.

Fellow soldier
February, 1971
Ron volunteered, for duty, in Vietnam. He had been, fortunate and received, a tour of duty, in Germany. Nevertheless, he spent, the last six, months, of his military obligation, in Vietnam, with the Third, Platoon, Bravo, Company, 1/327th, Infantry. We had spent, the day working, our way out, of a damp, set, of hills, when the first, squad, RTO., slipped and knocked, himself and the radio, out, while on patrol. We organized, a rescue party and reconnected, the platoon. As we were moving out, to connect, to the road that led, from the A Shau, Valley, to Camp Eagle, Ron slipped and fell, on a frag, that was hanging, on, his left side. The grenade, exploded and killed, Ron instantly. Three others, were wounded and we were Medivacked out. An accident. A useless, depressing accident. It sucked, then and it sucks, now. He was, a good soldier and should not have died, but accidents happen, unfortunately.
