You're not forgotten, Terry your name lives
I testify for you, Terry, that your comrades who were with you in Cu Chi that night have never forgotten you. In recent years some of us have gotten together we felt like you were with us. You'd be proud to know that a new breed of CH-47 fliers have adopted our callsign. Muleskinners fly again! A rubbing of your name and the 10 other Muleskinners who followed you and Delaigle in death after that night will hang forever in the new Muleskinner orderly room. God Bless your memory and your family. PS: I wrote your Purple Heart and Bronze Star paperwork. I hope those small tokens showed your family how much you were loved and respected. Larry Wisnosky SP5, Muleskinner 9/67 5/68.   Apr 5, 2009
