Roar Lion Roar

I recently found out from a Columbia classmate that our Class of 1960 classmate Dr Howard Gerstel was killed in action in Vietnam as an Army captain in 1967. I did not know Howard well at Columbia, but I remember his face. Having served myself in Vietnam as a Navy doctor in the Marines, I was touched and saddened by the news.
May his memory be for a blessing. LCDR L.Paul Brief, MC, USNR (Ret)

A touched American

All tough I never met you Howard, the pictures of you checking/administering to those little kids speaks of your character and kindness. I am truly saddened that you did not make it back home.
There is no question that you are in heaven taking care of other kids in need.
God bless you

To a combat surgeon

It has been more than 53 years since we were roommates at Fort Sam Houston. Your devotion to the American soldier was evident from the start. Your courage in battle seen. You are a legend in the Williams family. Always remembered.
