My thanks to all of you who served or are currently serving. To my brother Vietnam vets - welcome home.
While all are in my thoughts - for me there is a special place today for a few. Tech SGT Richard Fitzgibbon, the first name on the wall - and his son, LCPL Richard Fitzgibbon III whose name also appears on the wall. To PVT Kelton Turner, the last name on the wall.
And for my own personal "band of brothers", to SP4 Randy Mee, the first friend I lost May 19, 1969, and CPL Gus Allen, the last I lost 7/23/70, and to the altogether too, too many in between. You are in my thoughts often, and especially today. "Absent friends and fallen comrades!"
