Vietnam - Maj. Bertram Arnold Bunting

By Alex_Kruse

January 17, 1968

My darling wife--

As this day draws to a close, I can only
think of you. Possibly I'm just emerging from
the R&R haze in which I've been enveloped for
these past weeks. Until now the detail of our
meeting was all so clear: I could still hear your
voice, feel your warmth. Now the harsh reality
of your absence is upon me; I know all too well
this feeling: I lived with it for many months
prior to December. My only hope is that I can
survive this attack of my imagination upon my
sanity.

When we meet again I can promise you that
there will be no wasted moments. Every minute
spent with you will be nothing less than a gift
to be cherished. I have found that it isn't
necessary to always be doing: talking, eating,
walking, dancing, swimming. There are many
times when I want only to know your presence:
to hear you moving around, to see you next
to me. There are many ways of loving--perhaps
the simplest are the most satisfying.

Died Feb. 12, 1968 - 26 days later
