RIP my friend

So very sad. Nip was a good friend. I met him when we were assigned to the same squad in AIT (advanced infantry training) at Ft. McClellan, ALA. I was the only white guy in the squad and was treated like a king by my fellow squad members. Nip and I teamed up and did our training together. We were then assigned together for 13 weeks NCO school at Ft. Benning, GA (even though NCO school was supposed to be volunteer, we were told together that our first sgt volunteered us. We were assigned to the same platoon and again teamed up in our training. Then we went to jump school together and were again assigned as drill instructors at Ft. Jackson, SC and had the same squad. After that we were separated and I hadn't heard from him since. His orders were cut for Germany and mine were to Vietnam. Evidently Nip volunteered to go to Vietnam and there gave his life. RIP my friend, and thanks for teaching this old 1960's country boy that black folks were God's creation too and we all are brothers and sisters. And thanks for being a great friend.

Sky Solder Honored

On behalf of all your fellow paratroopers who served with the 173rd "Herd" Airborne Brigade in the Republic of Vietnam, let me offer our respect and regrets for your final sacrifice. May you rest in peace and never be forgotten.

He is buried in Southside Cemetery in Tallahassee, directly east of the primary landing strip at Tallahassee Airport. So say a little prayer in honor of him if you ever land in Tallahassee.

Dear SGT Ervin Jones, sir

With respect, Sir
