My Roomie

I was in OCS with Terry and his roomie at Fort Sill, OK where we trained before going to Vietnam. I just recently found Terry's "dog tags" from those days which some how made their way into my Army collection. I would be extremely happy to send these to one of his surviving family members. I would be equally pleased to tell you some wonderful stories about Terry if you would like to hear them. He was a wonderful friend.

Never forgotten

When I think of Terry I remember how he always made us laugh. We lived around the block and he was friends with my brother. Even though I was seven years younger he always was so friendly, he was that way with everyone. I will always remember how I was walking around the block with my baby nephew and I saw the flag and I knew. I went to the funeral at Saint Augustine's and it was so moving. His Mom and Dad moved a few doors down from us and I would visit with Gert and Michael along with my Mom. Gert gave me an Irish tea cup when I bought my condo and she came to visit. I still have it and I think of her and Terry.he was so full of life and I wanted his family to know that he is remembered. Heaven must be roaring with laughter with Terry there.

I will always remember that laugh!

I went through Signal OCS at Ft. Gordon GA. with Terry. He was a standout not only in performance but also in his humanity and sense of humor. I think of you often Terry. See you in line for the mess hall in heaven!
