Remembered Forever
Posted for: GARY LEE LOVE:
Gary is my brother. I remember vividly when our family was notified of his death. I will never forget. I will never forget the memories we shared although it was a very short life for him. Nor will I forget the others who gave their life during Vietnam and other conflicts. I retired after 23 years service in the Army, as a Lieutenant Colonel. I too served in combat. I participated in Desert Storm. It was quite different from what he experienced based on what he told me and what I have read. I was blessed to have served my country and to have a brother who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

A true friend, and will be remembered forever. Gary and I attended Jewell High School 3 years and our senior year was the first graduating class of Tinora High School. We played basketball together for the first 3 years and double dated quite often. Gary seemed to always eat peanuts before the games so we nicknamed him "Peanuts"! 3 days before I was to leave for Viet Nam, I got word from my parents that Gary had been killed in action. It was very difficult for me not to be able to say "Good bye." Tried my utmost to get leave but was too close to shipping out and couldn't get home. I have been in Washington several times and stopped by the wall to view his name. My son went to college with Gary's nephew and I was glad to hear he is named Gary also.

Some simple remembrances.
Posted for: GARY LEE LOVE:
I only knew Gary very casually because he played basketball on the Jewell High School team. My high school team played against Jewell a couple of times. I later married a girl from Jewell who went to school with Gary. I enlisted and we left the area for a long time. We later heard that Gary had been killed while serving as part of a tank crew. My wife (she's gone now, too) told me Gary came from a very large family and was highly thought of. God Bless
