Janie Reyes  
March 21, 2011 9:49pm
 
Hi, my name is Janie Reyes and me and my husband Sylvester met at a carnival in Karnes City in September when i was 15. He was drafted by the army the following may and in November he was told that in January he was gonna go to Vietnam. So we eloped on Christmas Eve and and got married on December 28th 1968 at the bee county courthouse. He wanted to be sure when he left that I became his wife. He left January 6, 1969 to war and got shot July 11, 1969 on his mouth and on his left arm. I would go with myh parents to work in the fields in Sharon Springs, Kansas, we were migrant workers. When the army sent him home he was sent to Ft. Riley, Kansas, which was 300 miles from where I was at. I took the midnight train to go see him. He told me that the hospital was close by but when I got to teh depot they told me it was 2 miles so I started crying because I was scared to take a taxi. I couldn't find him, I went to every floor and I finally went to the lobby again crying, but I met a wonderful nurse by the name of Kathy. Kathy took me to her house to eat and brought me back to look for Sylvester, she asked me if I had gone to ICU and I said no. We went and she found him, told him he had a visitor, when I saw him he had lost a lot of weight and I had gained. He said I looked like a plump little apple. We will be married 43 years this december!
