Dear Lt. Hogan,
While we were at the same places at the same time I never met you. I did have a really nice photograph of you and some of the guys from Mary Ann and thought it deserved to be on this site. I went out with Charlie Company on a few missions and had some real good friends who didn't make it that night. I wish you all could have made it and lived out your lives too.
The picture shows left to right Captain Richard V. Knight, Charlie Company Commander Killed in Action on Mary Ann; Lt Jerry Sams of Charlie Company, seriously wounded and 100% disabled that night; Sgt. Gibson; and of course Lt Larry Hogan shortly before you came back into Mary Ann and gave your life for your country.
God Bless You Lt. and your family.
