"To live in the hearts we leave behind,
A memorial initiated by his brother,
Eight of us from 2/503rd, mostly A Company, went back to Vietnam in Feb of 2001. I took a Bareroot Rose bush in my suitcase and planted it in your honor. Originally, my plan was to honor you where you fell. However, that was not possible. It now grows outside a High School Dormitory outside Saigon. Many of your old friends contributed to this dormitory.
This Rose is now being cared for by the young high school girls that are living in the Dorm. It is fully grown now and beautiful. To those of us that knew you, this will always be a tribute to you.
On July 10, 2004, your mom, Justine Snowden, is to be honored by the 173rd Airborne as a Gold Star Mom. This has been far too long coming. I look forward to it with great anticipation and eagerness.
We will always remember you.
