 Additional Information
Last Known Activity

Paul was my second cousin. I remember my mom telling me about their days as kids. Family get-togethers. She said Paul was always very shy, but always smiling. She thought the Army would be a good place for him to come out of his shell. I knew he was heading to Vietnam but as a child it didn't sink in that he would not come home alive. .He was killed after only twenty-nine days "In Country." Rest In Peace Cousin, We Remember.
