Arnold (Sonny) Stewart was my best friend. We were in the 3rd platoon. Sonny lost his life in Long An by a VC mortar round. He was from West Virginia, I loved him like a brother. He was so proud of his heritage, I remember him telling me "that a Stewart had defended our nation in every war up to the Vietnam War". His great great grandfather was Col. Jeb Stewart. Yes we were Sons of the Confederacy and he was carrying on the tradition. I still morn my loss. I am not at peace with this.
