They Are Not Forgotten

Each time it happens, it touches me.
Today it was the names "richard mckown wilford john house roger alex".
Put into a search engine. They found my Memorial Day remembrance.
Who puts the names in? An old friend? A family member who knew them? A family member who never knew them?
It doesn't matter.
What matters is that these people are remembered.
They were Naval Cryptologists.
They died in the line of duty.
They are not forgotten.

Two Sailors and a Marine, forever young. And You.
You remembered them. Were you young with them?
You thought about them.
You wanted to see if anyone else knew.

I know. I remembered too. Because of you.

Today it was the Kami Seya fire on September 24, 1965
