This Memorial Day I was searching for an old friend that was a brother to me during our high school years in So. Charleston WV. He had no real home for reasons that are very personal and I invited him to stay with me and my family. For 2 years my home was his and when he he joined the Corp my mother would check each morning to see if one or two were sleeping. I sewed on his stripes as a brother would do. When he
returned from Nam he spent many days telling his story and recovering his nightmares. I held him while he cried and he taught me what it meant and how to help many others as I taught them when they returned to school. We scattered across the world as friends and brothers sometimes do. But I never forgot my brother, my friend. I have missed him all these years and will miss him.
