Uncle Ben, you are forever, in our hearts
Uncle Ben, I'am your great nephew, Alex Castaneda. I wish I could have, had the chance, to know you, but fate had, other plans. In the years, after your death, my father enlisted. I'm sure it was, to avenge, your death. In the month, before he was, to be deployed, I was conceived. I have a strong belief, that it was, with the notion, that he was not going, to make, it back. I was born, while he was, still, in Saigon. Though he survived, the effects of the war, have weighed heavy, on his soul. I have dedicated my life, to becoming a history teacher, so as to teach future, generations, of our losses and the horrors of war, in the hopes, that we will not make, the same mistakes. Lots, of love, your great nephew, Alex.

'Empty Chairs, at Empty Tables,' from Les Miserables
Oh my friends, my friends forgive me, that I live and you are gone. There's a grief that can't be spoken there's a pain goes on and on Phantom faces at the window. Phantom shadows on the floor. Empty chairs at empty tables where my friends will meet no more. Oh my friends, my friends, don't ask me what your sacrifice was for. Empty chairs at empty tables where my friends will sing no more...

Sir, you fell to the enemy, just 1, day short, of your 41, birthday and for that sir, you will never, never be forgotten, for because of you, I'am sitting here, thanking you and all, of your buddies, that are fallen, but have gone up, to heaven. Today, is a day, where 36, years ago, you went, to save a piece, of heaven for us. God only chose, a few good soldiers and you, sir, were, among the best and the few chosen. We can enjoy this freedom, because of you. you gave, your all and gave me a chance, to be a son, brother, husband, father and to be alive and enjoy, my freedom and my family, something, that you, sir, gave up for us. God bless you and all your fallen soldiers, for giving us, this chance to live, in a better world. There are no words, yet known, to mankind, that can describe, the ultimate sacrifice, you made for everyone. Thank you and God bless you!
