For Someone I read About in a Book

My Memorial Bracelet is for Snyder Pattishall Bembry who was killed in Vietnam on November 17, 1965. I never met this man. I read a book when I was 14, I can't even tell you the name of it. It must have been a school assignment or something, but there were a few short sentences written about this man. I am now 27 and his name has never left my mind. I think of him almost daily and the words I had read about him. His memory and short life have eternally burned a hole in my heart and I know that I will never forget him.
