A tuff kid in our neighborhood

Edward J. Rykoskey, my friend who joined the Marine Corps before me was a tuff kid back then. Ed was a good ball player, he lifted weights and a few beers to. Ed was a Recon Marine, always looking for trouble to protect his fellow Marines. They are rebuilding a bridge downtown close to my home and have dedicated it to you Ed. Everyone spoke highly of you at the dedication ceremony. I left a Marine cover at the site but it was gone the same day. I like to think that you reached down from above and snatched it up!
Semper Fi Ed,
Jim Kistler
