    Buddy - my cousin, but most of all my special friend. How I cried when I heard of your passing. You were on your third tour, which tells everyone what kind of person you were, when you disappeared. We prayed that you would be safe, but it was not to be - God wanted you beside him. I accidentally found this web-site and kept searching til I found you. I have been to the wall and found your name. It was so awesome and yet so sad to see all those names on a wall that just goes on and on. Thank you for being my special friend and keeping me out of trouble when you guys would visit (and that was often)! Thank you for your service to our country and to all of us. I'll never forget you and always love you. Until we meet again.

    Buddy - I had not seen you for years when I heard that you were missing in Vietnam. At that time and now my mind goes back to the days you and your family came to visit us in WV during summers, and how we looked forward to your visits.
    Thank you for your years of service to our country and your passion for keeping America a free country. You are among the heroes that You are not, and will never be forgotten. Your Fraley cousins WILL remember! RIP Buddy
