May God bless you and keep you my ATO brother.

Wayne and I were pledge brothers and good fiends at the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity at the U of I. He was the epitome of a self-less, American patriot who would do his duty to carry out President Kennedy's doctrine "to assure the survival and the success of Liberty". I had a relatively cushey job as a flight surgeon flying off an aircraft carrier at the same time Wayne was in country. It has given me a heightened admiration for his sacrifice. And may God bless the Vietnamese person who found and buried him. Bill Mohlenbrock

my wonderful brother who gave his life for his contry

He always loved country and the military. Its hard to believe its been 48 years. As a child he played with toy solders in the sand under the porch addition. His favorite uncle was a Lt Col in the Air Force. He joined ROTC at Lyons Township High School in La Grange Class of 1957 and the also at the University of Illinois. Then enlisted in the air force he as a flight instructor first and then and flew F4s as part of the Triple Nickel Squadron. He left his family and wife and two young sons. Hw earned 2 silver stars and other medals. After almost 25 years after being shot down over Laos his remains came home and are buried with full honors at Arlington in 1994. A local villager lead the Air Force to where he had kindly buried him after he was shot down. May God Bless him. God Bless all those who gave their lives, family and friends
