Greek's last letter home:
"Please don't worry about me; the work I've been doing these past 18 months has been life saving to a lot of boys over here, and I don't mind working 18 and 20 hours a day because I feel I am saving many lives.

"I know you worry about me but please don't because I'm all right. I'll try not to take unnecessary chances because I have only 19 more days to go and I do want to see you and George very much.

"We also have Christmas to celebrate together for the first time in three years.

"I wish more boys and grownups could understand really what we're doing here in Viet nam. When I get back I'll try to define the meaning to other people that this war is not senseless and it has to be done no matter what the cost, as freedom has no price."
