Ralph Owens and Karen Crowe on Bruce to the family

This may seem to be an unusual request, but I hope you can help me.
My name is Karen Crowe. My husband, Ralph Crowe served in Vietnam in 1970 and 1971. Ralph is searching for relatives of Bruce Lynn Goodsell. He and Bruce were assigned to the same unit in Vietnam. Ralph has a photograph of Bruce taken the day before he was killed. Ralph wants to send the photograph to Bruce's widow or one of his daughters.
In Vietnam, soldiers were known by nicknames or simply their last name or their given name. We have just recently learned that Bruce's last name was Goodsell. By searching the VirtualWall.org, I found the info of the unit and the full profile and made the match. Believe me, we have been searching for years but Ralph's memory was foggy.
I hope you can help me or at least send my request on to someone else who may be able to help. You or they can contact me at [email protected] or contact
Ralph at [email protected]
If you are one of Bruce's family members, please accept our condolences. I realize that it has been forty years, but the pain of losing a loved one or a good buddy is never forgotten.
Thank you very much. ~Karen Crowe, Oklahoma
