Fred was the sixth child born in the Manly Family. Prior to his birth were five sisters, followed by three more girls. Fred wanted to send each of those born after him back, to be traded for another boy. Finally, he got his wish when number ten, another son, was born.
In response to the question as to why he volunteered for a third tour in Viet Nam, he replied, "I do not want the war to come to the United States where my family is, so I'll go over there and help finish it."
He was a son and a brother we are proud of!
