My last memory of being with Al is at a picnic he shared with my family and me just before we both entered the military--he, the Army; I, the Navy. It was the last time I saw him alive. While he was in Quang Nam, I was east of Hanoi on an aircraft carrier. I heard that he was caught in a mortar attack--four days before he was to come home. I got to come home. Al didn't. The next time I saw him was at his grave in Charleston. I still miss my friend.
