Making a bad year better

Over a lifetime some years are better than others, and sometimes a particular year is especially bad. 1969 was one of those bad years for me, as my childhood friend and fellow Marine Lee Roy Herron was killed in Vietnam, and I almost died after a three story fall. But three decades later I learned that Herron had died a hero, receiving the Navy Cross posthumously. Since learning the actual circumstances of his death, I have been on a mission to preserve Lee Roy's memory, heroism, and legacy. In so doing, perhaps I have made 1969 a better year for his family--and me.
