REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR RICHARD ALLEN MAUL

High School Buddy

Rich,

We initially thought we wanted to work in the name of the Lord, and became seminarians at Quigley Seminary. We realized this was not our calling and would contribute in other ways to our community and country and transferred to Mt. Carmel. We believed in our country and with strong patriotic feelings, we joined America's Armed Forces. You in the Marines and me in the Air Force. We both ended up in Vietnam. Our paths paralled until July 1966. 35 years later, I still think about you often, remembering the carefree, fun times through high school. Although our friendship was short, it was a strong and powerful one that I will remember always.

You are in a better place, and someday we will see each other again.

Childhood Friend

Rick ands I were friends ever since 5th. grade at St. Joseph's grade school in Chicago. We paled around alot. Neither of us knew that the other one was in service. I was an FMF Hospital corpsmen with 1/1 and Rick was with 2/1. We met each other while my platoon was down near Chu Lai and I had to go on a medivac with one of my Marines to 2/1's BAS. That was the last time I saw Rick. I didn't know about him being killed till after I got home in Aug. of 66. After I got off the plane my brother told me about Rick. It took me till 1987 to deal with Rick's death. I'm 56 years old but still cry when I think about Rick. I'll see you on the other side Rick,

A good man.

I was devastated to here Richard had been killed. He was fine when I was sent home the end of April. I talked to him right before I left. I lost a good freind. The Corps lost a good Marine. His parents lost a fine son. He left a void that can't be filled. I'll never forget him.

To a Friend

I was Maul's friend. I was also the Corpsman who tried to save his life, and couldn't. I still weep for him, and our other friends. Sleep in peace Richard. You live in my memory.
