 Additional Information
Last Known Activity

Before my Uncle left for Vietnam he asked my dad and his other brothers that if he did not make it home from Vietnam to name the first-born son in his memory. Even though I never knew him I always wanted to know of him and his life. I'm proud to have his name and I'm honored to carry on his Legacy. 

A memorial from his nephew and namesake,
Sherman E. Otis
