Terry, you are my hero and there are not many days that go by that I don't think of you. I looked up to you and still love you very much. It hurts not to have you here, but I know you did what you believed. I sure do miss you, big brother.

With much love and a broken heart,
your baby brother Robin Graham

Lieutenant Graham ... You and Lieutenant Browne haunt my memories with flash-backs to that fateful battle that night at Duc Vinh that took both of you.

You were heros in the truest sense of the term. Your courageous acts will never end inspiring me.

Terry, I never got to meet you, but I carry your name. Your picture on our wall is a constant reminder of the sacrifices that heros make to keep the world free. You have also inspired me to be the best I can be, both in my military service as well as family life. My wife and I are expecting a child in July, and your name will be carried on for another generation; I wish you could be here to help me teach him the values that your memory taught me: Honor, Integrity and Courage.

Your Mother and Father are an inspiration as well, and I lost a personal hero the day my Uncle Newell passed. Please know that his and your memory will not be forgotten.

Very Respectfully,
Your Nephew,

You were my brother-in-law and a friend. I kept your letters until your Mom needed them.

My son carries your name and now my grandson. How proud we were of our son to carry your name on with his son.

Knowing you and your family has been a privilege.

Life seems to have its own roads and some we do not chose. But your short time in our lives will never be forgotten.

From his sister-in-law,

Terry and Earl

I was with you in Duc Vinh the night before you were taken from us. We spoke of many things that evening: Home, Life, Family and love of each.

Rest in Peace, Brothers - You are remembered.

not by reason of any care they have for themselves,
but by the love for them that is in other people"
