Home Town

I'm from Spokane, WA where the Inland Northwest Vietnam Memorial is located. On this memorial is Lt. Reasoner's name since he was from the Northwest. I wish I would have known him. Email is [email protected] if anyone can tell me about him. Thanks and God Bless.

Memories

I was lucky enough to know Frank when he was enlisted at El Toro. We became very good friends and ran into him again in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, just before he shipped in country. A wonderful person and one hell of a Marine.
