My Friend

I was with Dennis Burke and Burns that sad day, Burke was new to our unit but made friends fast. I was the medic that retrieved and treated them. Neither suffered thank God. I was the 3rd APC behind when we heard the explosion. I think 6 other guy's were seriously wounded including on of my new medics that was on the 1st APC.I'll never forget.

A basic training buddy

Dennis was in my platoon at Fort Jackson in the summer of 1966.
I remember him well since our last names are the same but we are not related.
I learned of his death many years after he passed. I was a clerk in Vietnam & never saw any action. I have a great deal of respect for people like Dennis who did the real work in Southeast Asia.
