My childhood friend

Melvin and I got in and out of trouble mostly together,usually where you seen one you seen the other! We were always adventurous-either swinging over the mountain near Chief Logans head, or doing something totally whacky! I was the older one (June 18,1946 DOB)but not usually the wiser one! I wish I had known that he was in country as I would have arranged to see him somehow! He will grow no older,he will grow no dimmer in our hearts as we remember him,we lost a brave young man that showed no fear thru his short life! I will always remember my friend,my buddy, and most of all my hero! Rest in peace my friend and Nam brother and guide me to heaven when my time is up!
