    George Alvarez was the brother of my best friend Xavier . The entire family was hard working similar to the culture in the movie Mc Farlan. George was our ride to junior HS in a beautiful El Caino. I retuned from my tour in Vietnam only to find George was Killed, it's was Sad. He is always missed. I was happy to see picture of George on the cite. Blessing and peace upon everyone who loved George

    George it has taken me many years to say this, but my friend God Bless You and what you stood for. Honesty, Integrity and Loyalty.

    I'll never forget the day you died next to me as I said a prayer for you and carried your body to the chopper pad for Medevac.

    For those that didn't know,,,he felt no pain. It was over very quickly.

    In the photo. George far right, me 3rd from right

    RIP Brother
