I remember "Sneak"

Hopson "Sneak-a-Peak" was the son of Mr. Thomas Covington, one of my Dad's close friends. Sneak was one of the first (or maybe even the first)African American in Bucks County, PA, killed in action during the Vietnam era. I remember attending "Sneaks" funeral service which was held at the Community Baptist Church in Bristol, PA. What I remembered most about the service was the emotional reaction of his father. He said: "They took my son, he was my only son". It was so heart wrenching to see Mr. Tommy so distraught at the loss of his only son.

"Sneak", you are remembered
