My cousin, Mack Lee Preston, was killed in Vietnam in 1969. His family lived in the country.
His name is on the Wall.
We played together as children when my family would visit Grandma's. We lived about 100 miles away. I had just graduated from high school when he was killed.
I still remember the fun we had together and how devastating his death was to his mother, Mary. She never stopped grieving his loss.
She is with him now in heaven.
A memorial initiated by a cousin.
I miss them,
