"Like Steve Kelly, I also served with Grady in the 240th QM Bn. Grady and I could not have been different in many ways, yet, as fellow lieutenants who spent so many hours together, we got to know each other quite well. On June 5, 1970, I was supposed to relieve Dan Kimble, another lieutenant in our unit, so Dan could celebrate his birthday. I was returning from my R & R, but plane difficulties forced us to return to Saigon. So I got back to Quin Nhon too late to sub for Dan. Grady went instead. So I have thought of Grady unceasingly all these years. He loved his family and he loved his country. Thoughts of him will be with me forever."  -Andrew O. Watson
