Chief.... I was talking to Frankie a couple of weeks ago and told him that I will be going down to the Wall to visit. He misses you, but he's doing pretty well for himself and is a real nice fellow. I am sure that you are proud of him. Joe K. The son of A Chief and A Navy Corpsman.

Hi dad. I want you, to know, that we are proud, of you, for serving, our country well. We love you. I try, to live, my life, to make you, proud, of me and to honor you. I feel, that, I'am getting closer to you, by searching, the net to link up, with some, of your old buddies, who may have served, with you, in Vietnam. God Bless. You, are my hero. Your loving son, Frank.
