ALWAYS A HERO TO ME

Captain Richard Carl Behnke was my first cousin by marriage, 6 years older than I. He was a young boy who lived every day with joy and purpose; he became a young man who did the same. He loved family, friends and Country and was loved by all who knew him; he was admired by many who did not.Time spent with him was always an adventure! I still remember the day my mom called me at nursing school to tell me of our loss but I never knew any details until today; I am so thankful for this site.
Thank you Dear cousin "Dickie" for letting me know you; thank you for your love of family and friends and service to your Country. God Bless you and all of our wonderful service men and women.
