    You were lost 50 years ago today. Just doesn't seem possible. Rest in continued peace my good buddy. You will not be forgotten.

    Wayne and I seved together in the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, N.C. and in the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Vietnam in 1966, 1967 and 1968. Wayne and I, along with three others, volunteered for the Brigade's Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol Platoon and served together in that unit until my return to the States in April of 1968. Wayne was subsequently K.I.A. on May 1, 1968. He was an outstanding paratrooper who was extremely calm during the most extreme conditions. We served together on many LRRP missions. The photo of Wayne on this site was taken at the conclusion of one of those missions. I think of Wayne often. ..
