He was my cousin and a fine soldier at that. He was young, and was doing what he was told to by his country. I remember the day that he we were told that he was missing in action and my mother was told. She loved "Bo" as he was called. I just want to say that as a career soldier myself, I know what it is like to lose someone and a fellow soldier. I know he is with us in spirit even after all these years.
