For Ken George...
Son
Husband
Father
Brother
Marine

You lived your life loving and protecting others. You asked so little. You gave so much

To the family
To your country
To the world
Us

The Lord blessed me by having you pass through my life. It was such a short time. Yet time doesn't measure the love that can build. I found that love for you. For your family.
Though we all hurt because you are not physically here with us now, we can have peace of mind knowing that you are with the Lord. And, someday, we will meet. Never to part again.

You fought so many fights for our country. You died because of fighting Cancer and perhaps that was caused from the Agent Orange in Vietnam. Now, you have peace at last.

Thank you God, for sharing Ken with us for 47 years. Please God give Ken's family peace of mind. Give me the words to help them.

In honor of our Father who passed away on March 20, 2006 - We love and miss him very much. In April of 1941 he enlisted in the United States Army, serving in the 151st Field Artillery Battalion of the Minnesota National Guard. He served in World War II where he received the Silver Star for ''Gallantry in Action'' in March of 1943. He was at the time in Tunisia, North Africa. The newspaper article in his hometown explained that he and two other enlistees volunteered to locate an enemy location. The terrain they had to cover was about 4 miles across and it was almost all out in the open and part of that was a minefield. They successfully located the enemy and returned to report its position; the enemy was then immediately taken out. One of the volunteers was injured in this maneuver, but they all three returned. His tours of duty included Algeria-French Morocco; Tunisia, North Africa; Naples-Foggia, North Appenines, and Po Valley. He was honorably discharged in 1945. Through the program Operation Recognition, he received his High School Diploma at the age of 86, and the same month received the Legacy Medallion for his service to Country. He belonged to the local American Legion and VFW.

By Connie Gozdan, Las Vegas, NV USA
This is a tribute to my brother-in-law who was a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps-Reserve (died in Quang Tri, South Vietnam 1967). I never got to meet you and love you as your family did and still does. Your brother, Galen, grew into a fine man, husband, and father. He was so thrilled to see your name on the Internet. We placed a picture of you in our home, knowing and believing that a part of you will always be with us. We know that you are now with the angels, and your battle is over. What a joyful day that must have been in heaven when so many of the family was reunited. Some day I will get to meet you and we will walk in the garden together. Your brother is also an angel but here on earth. When we battled breast cancer, a voice told me in a dream to rearrange the letters in his name and it spells angel. Well, Galen does spell angel. I believe you may have requested that encouragement and assurance be given to me. That is the sort of brother Galen remembers. A man who recruited young men to go to the Marines, and couldn't bear to send others where he hadn't been himself. You went, and you took care of those young men. You gave your life for all of us. The Bible says that no greater love has a man than to lay his life down for a friend. I know you rest in peace.

By Michael Graham, Euless, Texas
Born 12-22-21 Died 07-04-61 Active Duty (AAF-AF) 03-22-42 07-04-61 My father died while still on active duty with the U.S. Air Force on July 4, 1961. His death was not service-related. He was only 39 years old, leaving a beautiful wife, Nell Graham, and two teenage sons, Mike, age 15 and Rick, age 13. Our mother never remarried or dated - she went to work and successfully became a single mother 44 years ago when it was not so common and not nearly the "support" that single moms have today. Our father flew B-24's out of Italy in WWII and F-86 jets in Korea. He was commander of a fighter jet squadron when he died. He would be proud that his grandson that he never knew (my son) recently took an avid interest in his granddad's military career. Independence Day is the most sacred of non-religious holidays, but it is bittersweet in our family. While we celebrate the freedoms and advantages that all our soldiers earned for us, we must also mark the passing of Major R.K. Graham. He is loved and missed every day and especially on the Fourth of July.

By Belinda Saxon, Perkins, GA USA
My father served eight years during WWII. He was on a minesweeper. I know that he never watched war movies. He never said too much about th the war. He died of CRP at 69 in l995. He loved to fish and had a local magazine published calling him "Screven County's Bass King". He was a perfectionist at his profession. He was a finish carpenter. He was a special man, my father.

ArmyDavid Livingstone Groves
By Robert F. Burton, Homosassa, FL USA
In Memory of you David Livingstone Grove, died in Kontum Vietnam, on Sunday March 17, 1968. You and I did alot of flying together in the Nam. Out of all the hell we went through, all those battles, and you checked out on me. But I know you didn't want to go, it was just your turn. I was with you when you died, and even though your not here on earth there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about you. I'm sorry for not writing or calling your parents. But I was a mess when I left the Nam, I stayed a mess for 28 years. I didn't have the courage to talk to them. I hope you are holding a gunners seat open for me. I miss you Dave, and you are not forgotten.
Your Friend and former gunner

Dear Papi, you will always be in our hearts and minds.We will never let go of you and we will love you forever, thru Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.

ArmyJames Dale Guffey
By Linda Barry, Oklahoma City, OK USA
Killed March 6, 1968, at age 19 in Vietnam. He was covering for his fellow soldiers so they could escape when he was shot and killed. He was an only son who could have avoided the draft, but he felt an undeniable call to go fight for the rights and freedoms he held so dear. We think of him lovingly everyday and wonder what he would have grown to be if he hadn't been so viciously taken away.

By Danette, Lake Station, IN USA
This is a Dedication to my father, who passed away Thanksgiving day in 1978. My Father was a signalman 1st class in the US Navy. He served in Vietnam. My mother told me he did not have to go, but he felt it was his civil duty to serve his country, so he went. When he returned home, shortly after that he was diagnosed with cancer. He was 33yrs old. I was only 9 years old at the time. I wish you could have watched me grow up dad, graduate, get married, and see your 1st grandchild. Not a day has went by that I havent thought of you, but I know you are in a much better place. I love you.
Your daughter, Danette

God bless all of the men and women who have served our country! You are greatly appreciated and loved

MarineJoe Maria Gutierrez "Sonny"
By Alex Afanador, Honolulu, HI USA
Uncle Joe, You were killed in Vietnam when I was just a baby. I remember the stories that my Mom used to tell me of you and how you all grew up. My Mom missed you very much and talked of you often. She showed me pictures of you and newspaper clippings of your accomplishments and your death. I visited Grandma Cora many times and she showed me your pictures and the frame where your medals and burial flag were so proudly displayed. It was all of these things that inspired me to enlist in the Marines as well and carry on in the family tradition. Every time I visited the Vietnam memorial when I was stationed in Washington DC, and I saw your name on "the wall" I got all choked up and wanted to cry. I never got to know you, but I feel that I do know you, in my heart. You are in a better place where there is no pain or suffering. When my times comes I know that you will be waiting at the gates for me along with my Mom and Dad. I miss you Uncle Joe. I even named my son, Joseph after you. Until we get to meet in heaven.

A 6 month battle with cancer. I love you dad, and think of you always...I'm so very proud of you and I wish I would have told you more often.

Army Sgt. Gary Gwozdz
By Michael Pike, Newport, RI Sp5 US Army 1973-1983
My good friend Sgt. Gary Gwozdz was killed in a car accident in 1984. We went through respiratory specialist school as a team, worked as a team to support life in serious situations, and again, we worked as a team in civilian life to support life in a small trauma unit in the state of Maine. Gary's wife, Karin, was horrified to get the phone call after midnight during the Summer of 1984 - disbelief ! Karin had recently moved to the US from Walldurn, Germany.

The life of this very special soldier was taken from all of us by a self-righteous drunk driver who decided to drive Gary home because he was impaired.

One day we will all be together again in the Kingdom of Heaven. Gary always told me to "Keep the faith Mike". I am buddy.

Please, anyone who knew Gary from SanAntonio or Germany please email me. Good friends are a rare commodity. Michael Pike Sp5 1973-1999 Walter Reed Hospital and Brooke Army Med. Center.
