High School friend and war vet
Dean and I were classmates in New Jersey. I mostly remember Dean from shop class and freshman football. I joined the Marine Corp in August 63 and came home to Cranford in December on leave. I remember seeing Dean, Johnny Murphy, and Billy Ball at the Cranford diner. We had a good time as I remember. I went on to serve in Vietnam in 64-65. For the last 32 years I have lived in Virginia just outside Washington. For the longest time I could not bring myself to visit the 'Wall' as the memories were too painful. Last year I did finally make the walk to the 'Wall' and I am glad I did. Dean now that I know you are on the Wall I promise I will make the journey every year I am able. You are a true Hero and I feel proud to have known you. I will never forget your sacrifice. Rest in Peace my brother.
