'Empty Chairs at Empty Tables,' from Les Miserables
Oh my friends, my friends forgive me, that I live and you are gone. There's a grief that can't be spoken, there's a pain goes on and on, Phantom faces at the window. Phantom shadows on the floor. Empty chairs at empty tables, where my friends will meet no more. Oh my friends, my friends, don't ask me, what your sacrifice, was for. Empty chairs, at empty tables, where my friends, will sing no more...

The soldiers do not speak. Nevertheless, they are heard in the still houses: who has not heard them? They have a silence that speaks for them at night and when the clock counts. They say: We are young. We have died. Remember us. They say: We have done what we could but until it is finished it is not done. They say: We have given our lives but until it is finished no one can know what our lives gave. They say: Our deaths are not ours: they are yours they will mean what you make them. They say: Weather our lives and our deaths are for peace and a new hope or for nothing we cannot say: it is you who must say this. They say: We leave you our deaths. Give them their meaning. We were young. they say. We have died. Remember us:

I gave Roy his going away, party, when he was drafted, into the Army. Little was I to know, that it, would be the last time, I got to see him, alive, for I was drafted, a couple months, later and never got to see, each other, before we shipped out. I was wounded in action, on 4, Jan., 70 and was back home, on medical leave, the 25, Jan., 71. A few days, later, my Dad came, home and informed me, that Roy had been killed, in Viet Nam, according, to news going, around town. A couple days, passed and I received a letter, in the mail, that was written by Roy, the day before, he was killed, worrying, about me and hoping, that I was coming along, okay. I became bitter, that Roy's life, had been taken, at such, a young year and that, he never got the chance, to become a husband, father, grandfather. The last time, I saw Roy, was, at the funeral home, under, the glass window, they didn't even have, his hair combed, down, on his forehead, like he always, had it. It took me a lot, of years, before I had the courage, to go back, to his grave, to talk to him, what a surprise, his Dad was buried across, from him, didn't know, that old Roy, had passed away, also. I have visited Roy's grave, often and been, to the WALL, twice. I miss, the good old days, that Roy and I had, partying and dating. Roy, just turned 51, on Sunday, he was here, for 21 and been gone, for 30. I miss you, Roy Boy and love you. Doug

It isn't right
I still remember the basketball games and the parties. Sure was fun. We never even gave any thought to the bad things that could happen in life. I'm glad we didn't, it would have ruined the good times we had. Gid Bless you Roy.

Always Remembered
Just to let you know that you are always remembered and missed greatly. Been almost 5yrs since I commented before but seems like only last week. I got to see a picture of you left at the moving wall in Sandusky. I believe it was taken at Smith's house celebrating your birthday before you left for Nam. It was hard to leave it there but it had to move with the Wall so others could see how you were. I believe Gary & Gayle visit your grave site often and Tom Griffin even named his dog Beasley after you. I have a rubbing of your name displayed in my computer shop along with the pow-mia flag. It disgusts me how many people are ignorant of the pow-mia flag and of the war we were in. Love & miss you buddy.
