almost home

I recently found out that Maxims remains have been positively identified and am currently starting the process of claiming the remains for a proper burial which is 35 years overdue. It is ironic that this is the day that the initial claims process was begun. Max was shot down 35 years ago to the day. I never forgot. The journey is almost over Max.

never forgotten/always remembered

Maxim, your sacrifice and those of your fellow comrades in arms, will never be forgotten. Your memory provided the inspiration for my subsequent twenty years of service in the USAF. I was only 14 when you were shot down, but you left a lasting impression as you treated me as an equal. Others may have forgotten you, but I never have nor will I ever. Rest in Peace. Your brother in law,
Ruben R. Rodriguez

Semper Fi

Max and I were in college together for a few years & took a ride from Hillsdale (MI) to LA one Spring Break in two cars with a bunch of other guys: all of us young and carefree, never knowing what lay ahead. I wound up in Hanoi for three years in the 90s under pretty easy conditions, but never forgot the price other Americans paid, and for what?

God Bless you, Max. Jim
