RIP MY BROTHER !!

Richard, I saw a post on a veteran site on Facebook yesterday......your girlfriend mentioned your name and how you paid the ultimate price. I post a soldiers name daily from the Wall in tribute to all my fallen BROTHERS. Your story was so touching I wanted to pay a special tribute to you and your loved ones. It is ironic that someone who commented said he was there May 12 1968 and knew what happened to you. It is also ironic that I was in country in same AO ....... It was also my mother's birthday. I feel you have reached out and we have made a connection for some reason.God works in mysterious ways. RIP SIR.......YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN !!

A LOVED ONE

My family and I took Rick from are home to Ohare airport and said goodbye to him not knowing if we would ever see him again. All these years all we was told he was just a MIA. Helicopter shot down and could not get to him. Never knew the full story untill today. I still go to his marker at Camp Butler alot It is just a few rows from my brother. They were good friends and cousins. Death was a few months apart. He is still loved and missed very much.
