Cousin Charles Sheldon served two tours in Vietnam. He was a career man, older than the troops he commanded. Died of a heart attack while serving in Vietnam. His half brother Mack Nolen was an enlisted man in the U.S. Navy for 25 years, serving also in Vietnam. My husband Paul Kathro, drafted into the U.S. Army in 1966, serving at Fort Knox, Kentucky during the Vietnam war.

To all these men I say, "I remember".

That was remarkable. Thank you for sharing. And here is another thank you to all the brave men in your family.

Very interesting story Zanne! In today's world, the importance of giving all for your country, your family, your freedom, your faith, seems undervalued, and the whole military career is perceived by many as an ugly thing. Well deserved tribute!
