Greater love hath no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:13

A list of men our family knew who were killed in service to their country during the Vietnam War:

Steve Rodrigues
Ernie Garcia
Bob DeMello
Paul Thurkil
Mark Seedintof

My uncle, Jim Collier, also served in Vietnam. He died from cancer several years ago, the result of his contact with the chemicals of war.

Soldier, rest! Thy warfare o'er,
Sleep the sleep that knows not breaking,
Dream of battled fields no more.
Days of danger, nights of waking.

-Sir Walter Scott
