'Hello - Ole - Young Friend'
'Hello ~ Ole - Young Friend' It's taken me a long time to find you young know how we were, always with nicknames, never knowing real names, and always promising to 'keep in touch' once we got back to the world. I went to The Wall in Washington many years ago and was so moved I couldn't even remember your name[but you taught me another lesson,-Murf] never go there without a note or name written down-I've told others the lesson-it helped. I was looking at your old picture and managed to see your name on your shirt-it lead me back to the time, to the place, to the wall, to you. Funny, I got the album out to show a Vietnamese cashier her old town of Hue [she was only 1 or 2 years old when you died], I wonder if we knew her folks?!Anyway, Murf,-I'm sitting in an anger group at the Vet Center & having some individual sessions to, ya see I came home and became an alcoholic at age 31-got sober-now I'm almost 50 with 18 years of continued sober AA life! I'm grateful for my life and I sure miss you and especially who we were then -it seemed simple, easy, fun, and young oh so very young-without a care in the world except maybe were to find that 'sally j'-we did our best-we did our all-and you'll never grow old - young friend I sometime wonder which one of us got the better deal. The other lesson I'm learning-there's no big deals! And for all who know you,love you, and remember you-feel free to give 'ole Foggy' a line or a call (952)476-4910 or mail oh yeah Murph,-we got computers too-don't worry I still listen to the old tunes on that old reel to reel! Until next time...stay cool! THANKS OLE - YOUNG FRIEND! Re-visited January of 2012 - still sober! Working at the VA Medical Center here in Minneapolis, MN. Helping Heroes ~ like you ~ Everyday-Life is Great!

Thank you Pvt. Murphy!
Wish I could have met Pvt. Murphy and thousands of other brave vets like him. The picture submitted earlier tells a story of just how young the vets were, as they look like babies, compared to the senior citizens we are now. Seems like yesterday we were kids, then came the "Police Action." Sad Pvt. Murphy and so many others like him never had the chance to grow old and enjoy the freedom they paid such a high price for. You're my classmates and childhood playmates. You'll be forever burned in my memory as the fresh-face, apple-cheek kids that gave everything they had. Thank you, You were my heroes then and my heroes now!

Jim Plummer
Classmate and Friend
I am a classmate and friend of Wayne. In my class will is this posting:"I Mickie (last name ommitted(LNO)), will to Donna (LNO), better luck with Wayne Murphy than I had with." There were several of us home on leave at the same time and we persuaded Wayne to go down the road a piece and have a beer with us (he wanted to spend his time with Donna). He was headed for Nam (we told him to keep his head down), I never saw him again. He is now on eternal patrol. I have no words. Thank you Wayne, and Donna, I appreciate your loss and grief

Though I appreciate the comments (and am eternally grateful for those comments) of the former posting from Donna, she is not the Donna of which I have spoken of in my former posting (I try my best to be sensitive to these things and respect the privicey of all) Jim
