honoring you...

Thank you for your service to our country so long ago sir. While all deaths in Vietnam are tragic that you died just nine days after your 25th birthday is especially so. May you rest in eternal peace.

A Good Guy

I knew Bill in the 3/22, 69-70. I spoke with him right before he went up that road in Cambodia. He was always good and decent man. He had just returned from R&R. I was going in a few weeks. Never got to really talk R&R.

OCS

Bill and I were classmates in OCS Class 8-69 at Ft. Benning GA. Bill was in the 1st Platoon and I in the 4th but we became close friends. He invited myself and a few other classmates to his home in Atlanta in a free weekend during training and what a wonderful time we had meeting his parents and sister and enjoying their gracious hospitality. It's taken 49 years to post remembrances to the 6 brothers that I consider roommates. During the month of May 1970 I lost 2 other roommates as well. It was clear to us all the Bill was an outstanding candidate and a great leader. May God bless Bill's family.
