    Thank you for remembering. I’d like to include those killed in Vietnam including my friends, Larry Lano, William Worley Hall, Whessler and Lawson. May they rest in peace

    Thank you to all for their selfless service and to those who honor and recognize all the veterans – especially those whose memory are cherished on this day.
    My grandfather (US Army 1 SGT retired) and grandmother are both at Barrancas.
    So beautiful seeing the grounds… yet so heartbreaking at the same time.

    Thank you all for your remembrances. Our family is proudly remembering First Lieutenant Robert Castle, KIA, Vietnam. You carry his legacy forward every time you remember our fallen heroes.

    Some gave some others gave it all. Freedom is not free. God bless them for our freedom.
