Richard H Buzzell

I served at the 3rd Surg Hospital (Army OR Nurse) in Binh Thuy in the Delta when "Buzzy"'s helicopter crashed during an op. We were very close...great friends. There was a quonset O' Club on our compound across from the Navy compound where I met him and drank with him on a regular occasion...he was a special friend for whom I just loved...everyone did. He had a ball cap on a rack in our Club which he donned when he came in. He was such fun... I loved him. When his chopper went missing (no radio contact for many hours), soon after I heard the details of what tragically happened to him and his crew. Sadly, I miss him to this day and still tell his story. When I have had the opportunity to speak at the Traveling Wall when young people are present, to this day I tell his story so our kids have someone that they will know and can find on the Wall. His memory lives on with me which I continue to share during many public speaking opportunities. I am committed to keeping his memory alive. I have always felt that I should have sent his family his ball cap. Please tell his family. He was the best...so funny and a great storyteller. I know that he is still laughing in heaven.

After posting yesterday's thoughts on our youth and mentioning "Ballfield" naming.
>> I want to be very clear. My recognition/ballfield nameing, was "no where close to Richard"s "sacrafice"--his life! in service to our Country.
My recognition, was recognized, by being able to enjoy my life and help others.
Richard and so many others, gave me that opportunity.
