Never forgotten

Just dawned on me you were killed in action 4/18/1969. Every time I pass by the cemetery Think of you and all the crazy times all us guys had in high school. Some of the best times of my life. Thinking of you. Rest In Peace.

Purpoodock Club

I just finished watching Burns' documentary. I worked with Jimmy at Purpoodock Club, Cape Elizabeth, ME. His father was the PGA professional at Purpoodock.
Jimmy was the first person I knew that was killed in Vietnam. I was one of the "lucky" ones 2-S from 1967-1971....high enough lottery number in 1972 not to be called.
Today, I am 68 years old. One year younger than Jimmy should have been.

Jimmy, thank you for your service. You and your family got fucked.

Great Friend

Spent great times partying Serenity Hill, Thompson's camp Sebago Lake, and golfing. My tour in Viet Nam spent many times thinking of you and dying so far from home. Now 48 yrs later still thinking of you and all the SPHS classmates who died in Viet Nam. Will see you again in time.
