~ Remembering A Fallen Aviator ~
Remembering WO Michael Kight on his birth date and thanking him for his courage and the Ultimate Sacrifice he made for Freedom and Our Country. You are a HERO to all who knew you and loved you, and you will live in the Hearts and Minds of your family and friends forever. 'TO LIVE IN THE HEARTS OF THOSE YOU LEAVE BEHIND IS NEVER TO DIE.' ~ Robert Orr ~ I, too, lost a loved one who was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam in 1968 and know the anguish your loved ones endured. Rest in Peace, Brave Soldier, and know that you will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.

Honored Namesake
My name is Aaron Michael Schmidt. I am 18, and I am a member of "Carved in Stone", a play dedicated to the veterans of the Vietnam Conflict. While researching, I came across you, Michael, and I was reminded yet again of the need and purpose of our play. I live my life for those who gave it through my performance and increased awareness of your sacrifice, and I want you to know that I am honored to have shared a name with an American hero. While names are but petty words, the people who embody them are what give them honor, and therein lies the spirit of the Vietnam Memorial. In that spirit, I promise to live in honor of your name, as your sacrifice has given me a life with which to do so. Thank you. You will never be forgotten.

Although thirty plus years have passed and much about Vietnam has been forgotten, your family and fellow Vietnam Veterans remember as if it was yesterday. During the recent annual reunion of our platoon, we lit a candle in prayer to honor those of you who gave the ultimate sacrifice in a missing man ceremony. You are missed but never forgotten. We can never forget the cost of war in terms of human lives and this wall serves as a constant reminder of that cost. Your memory will never die. 173rd Airborne Bde Sep, Casper Platoon

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings, Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds and done a hundred things. You have not dreamed of wheeled and soared and swung, high in the sunlit silence, hov'ring there, I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air. Up, up the long delirious, burning blue I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace, where never lark, or even eagle flew, and, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod the high untrespassed sanctity of space, put out my hand and touched the face of God.
