I met Keith in Vietnam. We were in the same outfit. We became life long friends in a short period of time. We learned about each other's family, friends, and girl friend.
We shared all. A lifetime in only a few months. We were life long friends in a time that passed so quickly. I knew Keith and he knew me.
I was there when he died, and part of me died that night also. If I close my eyes, I can still see the way he looked a lifetime ago. I miss you bro ... Semper Fi ... Jess
