Comments:I am visiting Oklahoma City the 2nd week in September and plan on going up to the grave site at Wetumka. I'm interested in getting in touch with Robert Jackson at this time if possible. I thought very highly of Moses and he was killed just after I left the unit. For trivia, I am a graduate of OU, class of 52. Would enjoy hearing from you.

Comments:One of my best childhood memories is of Leslie. He had a jenny and cart and would come around and give the kids rides. I was too young to understand what happened at the time but I now know what a great sacrifice he made for his country and what a great loss to those whose lives he touched.

From:Allen
Comments:Leslie was a few years older than me in school but I remember when he went to Viet Nam and when we learned of his death. It was a sad day for everyone in Wetumka. I felt so sorry for his parents. So much promise gone at such a young age. It really brought home the meaning of death to a 16 year old.
