I'll always remember Mike: POSTED ON 7/6/09 - BY MARK MANFRED 

Mike was a great guy. We attended OCS together, went to Vietnam together. and were simultaneously assigned to Mobile Advisory Teams (MAT) in Vinh Long Province. We shared a room in Vinh Long City prior to our MAT assignments. I listened on the PRC-25 radio as they medevaced him and I was profoundly saddened when they said he was KIA.
