Frank was my classmate and dear friend. He was a kind
and gentle person to all that knew him.

Frank joined the Marine Corps early on in his young
life to serve his country. After Frank was in Vietnam
I received several letters informing me of his
time there, his thoughts, dreams and hopes concerning
the future of returning home to his family and
friends. It was not to be as Frank lost his life in
Vietam while serving his country.

I think of Frank Simmons often. I will always remember Frank
and hold special memories of him in my heart.

I would love to hear from anyone concerning my pal, buddy, and a person dear to me.

I grew up with my friend Frank Simmons and this is how I found your site. Frank was the big brother I never had, and I have missed him for a very long time. I was also a friend of the family and his brother Shulken whom I also have lost touch with. Frank, Ben Lee, and myself were the Three Musketeers.

Unfortunately I am the only survivor.
