I miss you Pete, I wish I could have been with you in Vietnam, you went before me. I remember our high school days and all the laughs we had, and I remember your sister Jeanie and your parents, you came from a wonderful family. The school and Oceanside mourned your death along with the 7 others from Oceanside High, I know Ronnie is with you in heaven and I will see both of you someday. We are going to the Wall March 17th to protect your names from anti-war protesters, you can count on all your brother Marines to be there to make sure they wont desecrate your names on the Wall. I miss you, brother.
A Note from The Virtual WallLance Corporal Peter Penfold was killed by mortar fire at Gio Linh, about 13 kilometers north of Dong Ha.
