He is not forgotten.

He was my brother for a short time but he is always remembered on Dec 5th and any day I think back to a time so long ago.

I knew, sweated and trained with these guys.

Many faces and names I have forgotten over the years but I'll always remember the men of A/2/2 on Dec 5, 1965. From the barracks of Fort Devens to Vietnam, we always covered each other's backs. I'll never forget them or what they did at Bau Bang and Ap Nha Mat.
