The name I carry every day of my life. The name that causes me to reflect on my good fortune & that which is the most meaningful. The name that reminds me that the only successes that matter are life & happiness. You are not forgotten & you never will be.

My First Sergeant
This would never be written except that I just heard your voice again. "Sir, you can't write draft paperwork. Say it one time and be done." After 50 drafts, the words are not there, this will have to do. You were the best First Sergeant. You showed what courage was all about and your example in how to be a soldier, and a man, was magnificent. I named my younger son after you, observe 7 February with prayer, and talk to you every day of my life. You deserved better than a scared mustang Lieutenant, but you did what good First Sergeants do. You ran the unit. You changed my life, made me a better man. You taught me more than you can know. I respect and admire you so. You made the unbearable an adventure, took care of your soldiers and made it all seem effortless. I look forward until we next meet. I can see it now as we sit in the rain,on the muddy grass, drink a Foster's, and laugh about how "It's a good day to be in the U.S. Army." Until that time, rest well, beloved First Sergeant. I am sorry that you died, I am glad you lived. Saturday, March 25, 2006
 

Robert Stephens, tylerhotel@hotmail.com, Served together, I served with Quick in the 123rd Signal Bn from 1957 to 1961. He was a good man, a good NCO, and a good communicator.

Stephen Burk, stephenburk@comcast.net, This guy was like my father, I lived because he sent me from Chu Chi to Du Hoa.. I wanted to stay with him. He said if you cant type then go to your assignment that I gave you. I stayed in the Army 20 years. I always tried to live up to his standards for the conduct of an NCO. I loved him as my father...Mar 23, 2007


I came back because Top told me to go to another bunker. Otherwise I would have been standing beside him. The mortar hit less than 5 minutes after I left.
