    This is a photo of Luke Tweedy, age 16, he is Pete's youngest grandson, the son of Pete’s daughter Michelle “Missy” Tweedy. While in DC for the We the People National competition he had the opportunity to visit The Wall. A friend snapped this photo when Luke was touching his PawPaw Pete’s name on The Wall, it looks like they are touching one another.

    I saw your photo and the memorial from your daughter on Face Book. You will NEVER be forgotten as long as there's Face Book and the VVMF, both on the internet. There is your name on the Wall in our nation's capital, etc. There's also your daughter, who proudly remembers her father. Rest in Heavenly Peace knowing that you'll always be remembered and loved.

  • I remember Mr Tweedy

    I was there the night this happened. I was assigned to second platoon, and flew in 16865 with Lt Schiebe,

    Mr Tweedy, Novakovic and Murray were in third or the guns platoon. If memory serves me correctly the camp was hit by a short mortar attack, and two Copperheads launched. Probably to find the position the enemy mortars were fired from.

    Not long after they lifted off, there was an explosion, I believe to the south of camp. Very quickly word spread that Mr Tweedy had gone down. No mention of friendly fire was made that night or the next day that I recall. But frankly we were pretty busy about that time.

    I'm sorry that I didn't know much about the pilot that flew that night. Only that he was TDY from the 1st Cav. We were all crushed when they went down. Mr Tweedy was a great guy and a fine Warrant Officer. I'll always miss him, George and Brian.

    Dear CWO Vernon Ruben Tweedy, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    With respect, Sir
