Knew Dave not as well as I should have. Actually, I heard that he went to Vietnam twice to serve heroically. I'm sure he never feared his outcome.

  A Loyal and Trusting Friend
Posted for: DAVID LEONARD UGLAND:
It was a most happy day when David moved into our Page Neighborhood in 5th grade and when I saw his West Point graduation in 1964. Many memorable times in between, from the simple to the crazy! Our regular correspondence throughout college and into his tour in Viet Nam was fun and valued. There has been a big hole in my life, since David gave his life
for our Country in 1965! I have missed my friend a great deal!
I thank God for 14 years of a terrific friendship!
