Glendon was called Butch or Butchie by his family. I was one of his brothers, the next oldest boy. He had 4 brothers and 5 sisters. His sister Rosemary was born on Butchie's birthday. I remember a lot of spit fights between Butchie, me and my other brothers. It was a spitting game where we would spit at one another and one time Butch spit up a big one. He spit it across the room and it landed in my mouth!! I'll never forget that awful taste or hyena laugh from Butch. I will never forget my brother and the good times we had together. The good Lord got a good ONE and I hope he gave the VC and NVAs a hard time. Butchie received the Silver Star and Purple Heart for saving his officer's life and 3 others. We are all proud and miss him terribly. Thank you and God bless.

Sincerely
