Dick Green - classmate, fellow soldier and friend

Dick, we all miss you. You and I put in papers for Vietnam from 3rd Brigade, 3rd Armored Division in Freidberg, Germany in 1971. My paperwork was delayed as my father, COL Wiliam C. Malkemes was in Vietnam at the time.

You went and paid the ultimate price. I would gladly have been your battle buddy if we could have gone together - I went to Vietnam in 72-73 after flight school.

You were a great West Point classmate, a brave fellow combat officer and even better friend. Serve with Integrity, Class of '70. You always did, my friend.

Rest in Peace.
