Irwin was a real good man
Irwin was the son of Henrietta (Kitty) Edelman Smith, who was my grandfather's second wife, after my grandmother passed away from cancer. Irwin was always a really great guy, always finding time to play basketball with me or ping-pong. A truly nice man. After graduating with a BA from NY Inst of Technology, he enlisted in the Army. 9 weeks after he was deployed he drowned. None of us relatives really know what happened. He is thought of fondly and greatly missed.

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

“You are Remembered”
Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. “He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!

Although I served, with the 9th, Infantry Division, with the 2nd/239th, Infantry, in Vietnam, during part of the time, that Sp4, Edelman time, in country, I'am not sure, if I personally knew him.
