I wanted to share this poem my Uncle Gary wrote when he was in Vietnam. He also died there, so today on Memorial Day, I remember him. He was my dad's youngest brother.
Here is a picture of him. It is the only one I have of him as an adult. I have one of him with my dad when he was a little boy and I do not have his military picture. I never met my Uncle Gary. He died the same year I was born.
As I was nearing Vietnam
I almost shed a tear
And back home I miss you all
And if there is something you want to do
Say a prayer that this war will end
