For the family of PFC Vincent J. Ellis, I don't have the words to take away the pain of your loss. I can pray Jesus will comfort you and bless you! I can tell you his name is burned into my mind and tears fell for him. I did not know him before the attack on June 1st at Salerno. I did have the honor of helping walk him towards the hospital til 2 medics began to treat him. He did not complain, did not cry, did not ask why him. He was a Warrior! 2 sources told me his story. Although recovering from wounds in a previous firefight, he borrowed a weapon when the attack started. He did not hesitate nor hide. I know the medic that told me this, and that she was deeply hurt by his death. The uniform I wore that day, I put it away after washing his blood out of it. It is hallowed ground to me, I don't know if that makes sense to you. I just want you to know I had the honor to spend a minute or two with Vincent that day. He is not just a Memorial Day memory, I think of him often. Yesterday at church we had an emotional Memorial Day service, and some of my tears were for him. I know you are proud of him, as am I. God bless you, I pray it in Jesus name!
