It was honor to know you
I looked at Reggi from a distance and since he was an upper-classman it was unlikely that he would noticve me so I made small talk for him to notice me. I din't know about his death in 1965 because I was a teenager and only knew Vietnam from the 6pm news. It wasnt until I went in to the Army and came home from Vietnam that I was aware of our classmates death. The Fort Lee VFW did a great Tribute to him in 1987. I also added him to A book I wrote. I wish I had known him better.

I remember Reggie as a tall handsome teenager who moved to Fort Lee from Florida. He was quiet and shy with a sweet smile and slow souther drawl. I was in Vietnam in the Marine Corps but never saw him there. My memory of him resides in the hals of Fort Lee High School. I really didn't know him all that well, but after all these years I still think of him often. Rest sweet youth. You will remain 16 in my memory forever.

A Letter To A Friend
Hi Reggie, The Sunoco you worked at when we where kids is now a car wash. The Esso I worked at is a bank. Fort Lee High and the GW Bridge are still here as are the memories. October 1966 is the last time we talked, it was about our futures and our fears and it was the night before I left for California on my way to Viet Nam. I told you that we would talk again when we got back to Fort Lee after our tours where over. Well, you beat me back. When I got back I found you waiting at Madonna Cemetery. I'm glad you came home but I wish you weren't there. Fort Lee and the world will never truly know what you could have contributed and that is a shame. All I know is that I was denied your friendship and for that I am sorry because that truly was a loss. It has been over 30 years now and I still come to talk to you and ask your opinion but I can't hear you. I guess I will have to wait until the "big" tour is over. When I catch up to you we will talk and I promise I'll listen. Until then my friend.

Memorial Day 2002 "35 years"
It has been 35 years. I visited Reggie's grave today as I do every Memorial Day. Does anyone visit this site? I would like to know. If you knew Reggie then you knew he was a great guy and should never be forgotten. If anyone does visit this site please drop me a e-mail it would be nice to know that he was not forgotten.
