Thanks for taking care of the 3rd platoon. Slim and I were together last month and had a walk down memory lane and you were included. Thanks again for your courage and your sacrifice. You'll never be forgotten.

Thanks for serving with the finest fighting organization, the Marines. As a hospital corpsman with Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment 1 Aug 69 to 13 July 70 I know you did a great job taking care of your Marines. They will always remember you and I will always honor your name.

I went through Hospital Corps School with George, his rack across from mine. When I first met him I thought "What are you doing in the Navy? You should be teaching at some college!". George always seeemed to be reading a book. On weekend liberty he was in his rack reading a book. After graduating from Corps School I lost contact of George. On an warm fall afternoon in 1989 I was at The Wall for the first time. A lot of names raced through my mind but it was like his was calling me. I looked it up and in horror it was there. I got a rubbing and then cried until I couldn't cry any longer. I was with 3rd Amtracs at Marble Mountain outside of Da Nang from May '69 to May '70. I was in county when George was killed. I have shown my kids and grandkids a picture of George and shared our friendship. I think about you often, George, maybe not as much as in the past but I do rememeber. I'm sure there are good books in Heaven and some day you'll have them all read.
