I am a student doing a vietnam research project and chose Wayne to do a biography on because I remember my father talking about his childhood friend Keith, who's brother had been in Vietnam. I would like to say thank you to Wayne and his family for his service.

Thank You.
I never knew Wayne. I worked for his brother, Keith, in the early '80s and through small talk, in passing he mentioned he lost a brother in Vietnam....I think the connection was my first name and Wayne's middle name. Anyway, Keith mentioned it briefly. Fast forward to May of '08. While on a D.C field trip with my son's 7th-8th grade class, we were asked at the Vietnam Memorial if we knew of anyone involved in that war and to go ahead and locate their name. Keith's brother came to mind. I looked him up, found his name, prayed and now feel compelled to type this and just say "Thank You" to Wayne and all who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms I and everyone else in this country enjoy and sometimes take for granted. So, again, and not just to the Vietnam heros, but to all of this great country's military heros and personnel who have come and gone..."Thank You"

Fellow Marine
Well done Marine rest in peace
THE TIME you won your town the race We chaired you through the market-place Man and boy stood cheering by, And home we brought you shoulder-high. To-day, the road all runners come, Shoulder-high we bring you home, And set you at your threshold down, Townsman of a stiller town. Smart lad, to slip betimes away From fields where glory does not stay And early though the laurel grows It withers quicker than the rose. Eyes the shady night has shut Cannot see the record cut, And silence sounds no worse than cheers After earth has stopped the ears: Now you will not swell the rout Of lads that wore their honours out, Runners whom renown outran And the name died before the man. So set, before its echoes fade, The fleet foot on the sill of shade, And hold to the low lintel up The still-defended challenge-cup. And round that early-laurelled head Will flock to gaze the strengthless dead, And find unwithered on its curls The garland briefer than a girl’s. A.E. Housman, "Don't be afraid, I've redeemed you.
I've called your name. You're mine.

Nobody named Bugs lives here!
When we were kids, if you telephoned and asked for "Bugs" (nicknamed so because of his prominent front teeth), his mother would tell us that "Nobody named Bugs lives here." He was a nice kid. He and my brother used to play together often. Now they both occupy a spot on the Vietnam Wall. We missed seeing them grow into old age with children and grandchildren. They will be forever young.
