Carl Schroeder Plumber098@Home.Com I was with him when he died. 1416 Catalpa Drive Royal Oak, MI 48067 USA I'm So Sorry! Don, I am so sorry that I was unable to do something. I came to you as fast as I could, held you. I was shot before I could do much of anything. You were shot again and passed before me. Again I am so sorry! We were in between a rock and a hard place. There is comfort in knowing you would have done the same for me. I will never forget you. I cry everyday for all of my guys. Being a corpsman was such an honor. I am honored that you placed your life in my hands, did your job counting on me to help, knowing I would be there. I want you to know that I was there, I came when you hollered. I want you to know that I would have given everything in the world to prevent your death had I been in control. A higher power was in charge of us that morning. 67 of you passed on that morning. A day I will never forget, nor do I want to. They held a beautiful service for you back on board the ship. I have a picture of it that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Look for me on Memorial Day. The tears I shed are for all of us. Wave to me and let me know you are OK and truly in a better place, never having to sacrifice again as you did at 7:30am, May 10 1967. I think of you at that moment every year. You gave your life for me! Monday, May 15, 2000
