I just remember the good times we had hanging out together. And you coming over to my moms house any time you were on leave for a good meal.

The empty desk.

I was a classmate of your sister's at Fenger High school in Chicago. It was an unusually warm and sunny day for late February in Chicago. As I sat in the history class, I noticed that the desk where your sister usually sat was empty. Her desk was one row over from mine an one forward. The teacher announced to us that your sister was absent because her brother had been killed in Vietnam. We were all stunned and saddened. Little did I know on that February day in 1967, that just two years later, I would myself in the army 1969. I ended up being sent to Vietnam and was assigned to C Co 2/1 196th Light Inf Brigade, the same brigade as you had served in. We loved our medics and I am sure that your guys loved and respected you too. I grew up only 5 blocks away from you on 116th st. Rest well "Doc," you are loved and will forever be remembered. I will never forget the empty desk.
