NOW SLEEP Peace has come. Now you can truly sleep,my son. The muddy field where you were laid Flag-draped, will now be green. Redbud and cherry blossoms can be seen Soon in bloom above your head. Arlington''s Eternal Flame Flickers across granite rows To illuminate your name And then beneath it (with lightning's calm) Strikes in black the word VIETNAM On your own stone. Peace has come. Your medals may turn green In time, like your beret But forever there are those who'll say, 'I live because he cared he came!'

Fellow Eagle
THE BROTHERHOOD OF EAGLES SALUTES YOU. I know the perils you faced and the strength you possessed. You stood tall, answered your country's call, and gave all that you had for your brothers and country. You were part of the greatest unit ever, and I'm proud to be of the same Brotherhood that you served with honor and courage. You are not forgotten, nor will you ever be forgotten, as you will remain forever in the memory of every Screaming Eagle that has "Been There and Done That". We will all meet again when all of the Eagles are called home. Continue to stand tall my brother, for you are still in Eagle Country and now soaring with the elite. A Fellow Eagle, 2/506th (Currahee), 101st Airborne, RVN (A Shau Valley & DMZ), '68-'69.

Friend: I was there when he died
208 West 23rd Street, Apt. 1017
"The Acid Man"
His helmet said "The acid man" on it. I had gotten friendly with him when I was assigned to B Company, 1/327, 101st Abn in February of March of '67, and he was killed a couple of weeks later. I admired a bayonet he had he said "you like it? it's yours." I still have it. It's been hanging upside down in it's scabbard on the back of my apartment door since February of '68, where I can reach it if I ever need to. They say his death was "hostile, ground casualty misadventure," and I'm not too sure what they mean by that, but he was killed by 'friendly fire,' in his sleep. He was hit in the head, and I'm sure he felt no pain. I don't know if he had any brothers or sisters, but if he did, and one of them reads this, I hope what I've said helps somehow.
