Desmore died by my side

Spell check really messed up my posting. Larry died by my side defending armored vehicles that night in March of 1969. We were under heavy attack from NVA forces from RPGs, morter artillery and small arms. By morning every APC and tank had been destroyed and there were heavy casualties. Larry fought bravely all night but some time pre dawn he had taken shrapnel from the exploding vehicles and as it got light I reached over and he had passed on. I think of him and so many others every day. It's been 50 years and I'll never forget. Larry, RIP.
