In Honor Of: = Soldiers Name: Bobby Twitty
I never met Bobby Twitty who was killed in action in July 2007 .
But I met his Mother about six months after his death and she told me
about her son being killed and how hard it has been for her . I could see
the hurt in her eyes , the hurt of a Mother who has lost her son in a
war that so many of us do not under stand . She spoke softly of how she
now works with other Mother's & Father's of fallen soldiers in the
Houston area and how this helps with her pain talking with them .
Not one time as we spoke did she break down , but I could see it
was hard for her and she had to fight to hold back the tears . I wanted
to stand up from my table and hold her tight in my arms and tell her how
sorry I was that she lost a Son at such a young age fighting for
America thousands of miles away . What I did tell her was her Son is and
always will be a hero in my mind as well as thousands of other Americans ,
even though I never met him . Words can not heal the hurt of this
Mother coming from a stranger she has only known for a few minutes . But as
a American who lost two Uncles in WW11 and who's family has been in
this country since coming from Germany in the early 1800's, I know why he
died . He died just like my family members died over sixty years ago
in WWII , to protect his family and his America and our democracy from
any evil wanting to bring harm to our freedom . Just like our young men
have been doing since we became the United States , and will conti!
nue to do for our freedom . It's what keeps us above the rest of the
world , our young men willing to fight and die to protect freedom not
just in America but any where in the world .
PFC. Bobby Twitty rest in peace and know all of America honors your
sacrifice ,and I know you are not alone , you are with all the hero's
who died for America and freedom . So young, so young,but old enough to
know his call for duty and acted like a man, thank God we have men like
Bobby Twitty who have been taught what it takes to keep our America
free as a child , and when the time came as a man he stood tall .
Sincerely, Bobby A. Eis Jr.
GOD BLESS AMERICA !!!
