It still hurts, Greg, always wondered why you and not me. Wish I could have gone back and got even for you, been finding guys who knew you and got some pictures of you from them, also got details of what happened to you and your outfit that night. If you had to get it at least you went out giving it back to them. I'm real proud of you, Greg, always will be as I am proud of all us Vietnam vets.

Hey, sorry I missed the 28th, can't seem to keep myself out of trouble. I heard from Brian Books that he went to the Wall in DC to see your name. I've had a few of your buddies contact me, all had something good to say about you. Well, you're still very much missed. The ranks are thinning out these days, some party we'll have someday when we meet again in that ole firebase Vietnam place.

Hey, happy 57th birthday ... It would have been a good party, oh well another year gone and still the pain of Vietnam is everyday and never to be FORGOTTEN and never will by all of us who were there...

Your name is still a branch in my family tree
I've grown up without you - You've never seen me
Such a great man at such a young age
A hero, a tale told to me by members of that very same tree

From his greatniece,
Jessica Foy
