Comments/Citation
Dear SGT Binion: The night before you were killed Rick Clark told me he could not go on if you or I were killed. And you saved my life by distracting the sniper who had me pinned down, and in so doing, gave your own life. I have been unable to find your family but if they see this hope they will contact me. I recall how proud you were of your wife and the new chair and hassock. Sorry they were never yours to enjoy further. Thank you, my dear friend, for your sacrifice, which was, as Gatsby noted, only personal. Warm regards, John Swensson Posted by: John Swensson
