Kenneth McLeese- Exeter Cemetery, NE
Victor,
First of all, let me thank you for your service to our country. It is very much appreciated. Secondly, I have deleted the memorial that was a duplicate of your Kenneth McLeese. It was not done on purpose...when I checked for that name before entering my information, it probably did not come up as a created memorial because you had a military rank as well as a full middle name on yours.

Dupe deleted. That happened because I had a different rank on him. Thanks.

Thanks for the information and photo for LC Reevs. Actually, Tam Ky is the capital of Quang Nam Province but I'm assuming you might already know that.

Victor,

Thank You Sir for your Service, and also for honoring all you have through find a grave and beyond!

I am most humbled and grateful!

Also, I found you as you left flowers for my cousin, James Ahrens from Wisconsin, THANK YOU,

We have a grandma, God Bless her, 100 years young! And, honestly, to this day recalls the family receiving the news of when James was killed in Vietnam! She is a treasure, and to have a memory, like she does, is beyond incredible!

But, mainly wanted to thank you for everything !

God Bless You and all who served, forever,

Pat

RE: PFC Kermit La Belle
Victor, it was more than an honor to visit PFC Kermit Labelle's grave. My husband retried from the Air Force and served in Vietnam just before we were married. Fortunately my veteran came home unharmed and it gave us the opportunity to raise a family over the past 44 years.
Words mean so little but thanks for recognizing PFC La Belles service to his country and also more than thanks to you for your service !!!!

Sincerely,

Laurie
