To My Brother Roger Acree
I remember the day you left - it was on Easter Sunday. I also remember the time you chased off a boy who came to see me because you thought he was bad for me ... Thanks, it turned out he was very bad.
I remember the night they came to tell us you were missing. I received a birthday letter from you - mine was the 7th of July and yours was the 10th. I got the letter on the 14th and then a few hours later you were dead. You know, if you were here now and saw what a mess the US is in - well, good thing you're not. I love you and miss you.
Your sister Kathy
It will be 39 years this July 2006 since you gave your life
