Dick, you are thought of often.

When I think of you, I recall your infectious smile and can-do attitude.

You got us (me and the rest of the platoon) through Sand Hill Basic Combat Training at Fort Benning, April - June 1966.

You had attended North Georgia Military College, knew more military stuff than us newbies, but were willing to help us get through, too. Your leadership talents were evident then, too.

You were so gung-ho about your application to Infantry OCS, you gave me the encouragement to apply also. I got the the short straw (or so I thought) and went to Fort Sill, OK, for Artillery OCS.

I could go on, but I have said enough for now. It still hurts.

God Bless and hope to see you one day, over rainbow bridge.

From a friend,
