My brother in arms

Tiny,
I remember so well our many chats in the evening after flying all day. You were always the last one to bed. My is sad with your loss but warm with the moments we shared. God speed.

Rembering My Flight School Friend

Dick was a friend who has lived within me since our time together in flight school. His easy going demeanor and quick humor applied to otherwise worrysome matters is unforgettable. I can't recall a conversation that Dick didn't interject humor into. During our time together we endured the rigors of Flight and Warrant Officer Candidate training, spent weekends at the beach together, and broke away from our assigned Survival, Escape, Evasion and Rescue Training Exercise group to form a two man team that completed the course without being captured. We were pleased to get orders that would let us fly together in the 1st Infantry Division. My orders were changed upon arrival and I never saw my cheerful, optimistic friend again. Thank you for your friendship that lives so strong within me. God Bless

I did not know Richard

I do not know if we were related.
But having the same sir name and love of aviation. I feel I would have liked to meet him.

I visit the wall and pay tribute to him.

My brother died with Dick that day...

For 48 years I have carried you and your friends and family in my heart. On October 21, 1968 my brother was the pilot of the helicopter that you both lost your life on with 8 other men. 48 years later I still tremble when I think about all the lives cut so short. Thank you for your service and in a strange way I thank you for being there with Bob when he died. When I go to the Wall I think of the crew as friends who took their last ride together. I always look up your name, touch it, and say a prayer.
