I often wonder about him.
What would he be doing today if he survived Vietnam.
Would he have married?
What career would he have embarked?
After all, he was my oldest brother of seven.
Specialist Four Lukas J. Ventline, United States Army.
I recall the award of Purple Heart presented to my parents in 1969, a year after his death on
February 18, 1968.
It always will be.
All veterans have an honored place in my heart.
They gave their all.
