    My friend since Jr High. You were Guamanian but passed as a Mexican. After graduation we both went into the military, you first into the Army then me into the Air Force. We ended up in opposites parts of the world but kept in contact. I remember in 72 we were going to take leave and meet in Oakland. I showed up, but that is when I got the letter from the Army stating you were MIA. You had honor, respected everyone and always protected your friends. I will always miss you.

    I think about you and can remember our times in high school when you made us laugh, Jesse and I. I lookedt through papers trying to get information with no luck, untiI saw the wall and it brought tears to know they didn't find you. I salute you my brother and will not forget you, and thank you for servicing when so many avoided the responsibility.

    I had just gotten back from Vietnam and you stopped by my parents house to say you had orders for Nam...I asked what your MOS was, you said a 12 week course in fixing "slicks"... I said you were a door gunner...I said be careful, when iI left Nam there was about 40,000 GI's left, which made for a very dangerous said it would be alright....we shook hands and said we would grab a beer when you returned....I was so shocked and sad when I heard you were MIA...maybe when you return we could still have that beer....

    Ed, I remember the first time we met. It was a week or two before you were shot down. You and another guy were standing in the 2nd flight hooch and told me that you transferred in from another unit that stood down. You told me that you were from California. You were one of those guys I immediately took a liking to. On March 27, 1972 I came back from flying and was asked by Dave Fero if I would fly another mission with Major Gaul our c. o. We flew in a traffic pattern that evening monitoring the rescue over the radio. We found out that Larry Woods, AC was KIA and his body was being carried away from the crash site. A Medevac chopper was called in to extract the wounded. The next day we went to the Evac hospital in Pleiku and I talked to Dennis Hannum , CE who was wounded. He told me that he saw you exit the aircraft and next saw you being carried on a makeshift stretcher by 2 ARVN soldiers. That was the last accounting of you. There were rumors that you were left behind and taken POW. It was rumored that you were used as bait by the NVA and were forced to wave a white flag. It was also rumored that one of our Cobras opened fire on you because there were NVA hiding near a bush. I still have nightmares about that. God rest your soul friend, until we meet again.
