friend/fellow pilot

Bill and I went through OCS/Quantico starting 16 October 1967 and then flight school in Pensacola. He was a great friend and a damn good marine. He turned down a captain's commision right out of OCS as he had a law degree. Bill's father was an Airforce pilot in WWII, in the 8th Airforce, I believe. He was killed over Germany in a B-17. Because Bill was a sole surviving son, Bill signed a waiver so that he could go over seas with his buddies. Bill was flying co-pilot with Chip Butler on a run from Marble Mountain over the Hi Van pass to Hue. The highest peak along the route was 5700 feet. Chip filed at 5500 feet and that is where they hit.
I miss him and think of him often!
