The database page for Ray Gene Huff
Ray and I went to high school together. Looking at old year books, he was either next to me or one place away. I didn't know he was in-country until the weekly Beachon Journal summary came. I was with C Company, 27th Engineers, building a road known as Route 547 from FSB Bastogne to the A Shau. The paper said Ray had died in action near where the road was being constructed. To this day I believe C Company was blessed with no KIA's or WIA's during our time on the project because Ray and his buddies protected us so well. Thanks Ray for serving and giving that others might live.
The crazy thing is I just found out Ray was only in country six weeks. He never had a chance to get "short".
