My Uncle
700 Hammett Lane New Smyrna Beach fl 32168 USA
My Uncle was NEVER forgotten and ALL my children know the sacrfices that were made for this country by the brave and unselfish men whom then and NOW protect our way of life . We will NEVER forget !l
My uncle was a track star, he had major colleges looking at him for scholarships my dad always told me and I just read a letter he wrote 9 days before he was killed where he says ' I hope to see you all soon with no unneccassary holes in my anatomy ' I dont know if he had a feeling something bad was going to happen but I can tell you that in reading these letters and seeing you men keep the memory alive Its like I am getting a second chance to learn who my uncle was and also to stay close to my dad whom I miss everyday of my life .. Thanks so much for doing this , I would be honored to do anything I can for anyone who asks . Danny Hammett

Richard, It has been just over 38 years that you gave your life for a country that wanted a Republic form of government like the USofA. You and I should change places. You were married and just had a baby daughter and I was 20 & single. I remember how proud you were the day you told us about your daughter. I guess that GOD had different plans for us and I am not going to argue with HIM. Rest well my dear friend and combat buddy. Kevan

REFLECTIONS FROM THE MOVING WALL". I am a monument to a black period in this countries history.I am the Vietnam wall.,composed to two angled granite walls,inscribed with the names of fifty eight thousand,one hundred thirty four American men and women who died in hell (that was Vietnam) Many people come to see me. strangely they come mostly in silence-old people,young people,children,mothers,fathers,widows,and veterans.all for reasons of their own.they bring gifts,pictures,letters,flowers,poems and cigarettes.the letters speak of grief and loneliness and regret.they ask forgiveness.they are an out pouring of pain.the people softly touch names on my face.they water my grass with tears.then they leave in silence and I hope in peace.for I am more than two stone walls.I am a thank you from a nation that forgot.I am a long past due apology.I am healing for wounds too long left untended.I am a tribute paid to fallen warriors.I AM THE VIETNAM WALL. "America has forgotten the wars.will she remember her warriors"? You may be gone , BUT YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.

Richard & I were pretty good buddies, along with Wayne Rogers (KIA 11-27-68). 1st Bn 8th Cav. I was shot 11-21-68 or I would have been right along with them. A day doesn't go by that I don't think about you guys. I know you are in a better place than the last one you saw. Honor & Courage Kevan
