Comments/Citation
Eugene Borowski EBoEmail@Yahoo.com Vietnam Buddy Warren, MI 48088 USA All these years.

To the friends and family of Dennis W. Klein, My name is Eugene Borowski. I was stationed in TAY NINH with Dennis and the 588 Engineer Batallion in 1968. I vividly remember the night of 6, March '68 when our base got hit by mortar rounds. I myself was wounded that night in the arm and leg. I was carried off to be hospitalized and when I returned I learned of Dennis' death. All these years Dennis' name is one of the only ones that has stuck with me. Recently my Son and I visited "The Wall" for the first time and I made sure to "visit" Dennis. I have a "scratching" of his name on paper, soon to be framed. I trully wish I could remember more about Dennis.

If anyone who knew him or his family would like to e-mail me, please do. Pictures would be appreciated. Sunday, May 08, 2005
