Fellow soldier Tribute
On this Memorial Day weekend, 2013,
I would like to pay homage with my deepest respect
to one of our fallen comrades, CAPT David B. Tucker (KIA 10/67) in Vietnam.
I served under CAPT Tucker in 1967 and was one of his RTO's in A Co. 2nd Bn 7th Cav until July 67
when I rotated back home after my 12 month tour was over.
He was my C.O. and it wasn't until a year after CAPT Tucker was killed that I was made aware of his passing.
I just wanted his fellow Rangers,1st Cav soldiers and family, if they ever see this,
to know that he was a fine officer, good leader and just a great person to be around.
Every time I look at some of the pictures I took of him while there, it is with a tear in my eye
that I think of his passing. He was well respected by all who knew him.
Here it is, almost 50 years later and I still remember him with the highest regard.
I offer a hearty salute to his memory!
MAY HE REST IN PEACE!

REFLECTIONS FROM THE MOVING WALL".
I am a monument to a black period in this countries history.I am the Vietnam wall.,composed to two angled granite
walls,inscribed with the names of fifty eight thousand,one hundred thirty four American men and women who died in
hell (that was Vietnam) Many people come to see me. strangely they come mostly in silence-old people,young
people,children,mothers,fathers,widows,and veterans.all for reasons of their own.they bring
gifts,pictures,letters,flowers,poems and cigarettes.the letters speak of grief and loneliness and regret.they ask
forgiveness.they are an out pouring of pain.the people softly touch names on my face.they water my grass with
tears.then they leave in silence and I hope in peace.for I am more than two stone walls.I am a thank you from a nation
that forgot.I am a long past due apology.I am healing for wounds too long left untended.I am a tribute paid to fallen
warriors.I AM THE VIETNAM WALL. "America has forgotten the wars.will she remember her warriors"?
You may be gone , BUT YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.
