Thank You Eddy

I was friend of Edward j. Harris. We were in the same platoon in Officer Candidate School,51st Co., 2nd platoon, class 4-67. We were assigned to Ft. Bragg,EJ 82nd Airborne ,I was S.F.,we shared a house off base as 2nd Lt.,both of us had 67 Mustangs and used to take long rides . we talked about our lives and became better friends. Eddy went to college while I was a punk high school kid out of Detroit. He was a mentor in those months. EJ got orders to Vietnam before me. This is the crux of this remembrance ,I was given orders for Vietnam,I got a letter in 1/7/68 from EJ giving me a heads up on what was happening with regard to 2nd Its. being placed and the difficulties with men not wanting to be there. I saw friend from OCS and relayed what Eddy wrote.My friend told me that he had bad news that our classmate was KIA. Devastated over the news I vowed to myself to try to take control of placement in Vietnam,aSargent Major in 7th SF helped me in getting an assignment to 5thSF.TO this day Eddy has been in my thoughts and prayers I have always believed that his letter saved my life ,I wish that I had retained that letter. So that's the story! Thank you for the heads up!
