 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Graduated in June 1965 and went to Contra Costa Junior College. Enlisted, trained, went to VN and didn't come home. Mike loved photography, astronomy, motorcycles, his cat 'Puppy' and most of all, his Mother, Sisters, Grandparents and Aunt Barbara and Uncle Ray.

21 years old. Didn't have to go to Viet Nam.
Chose to go. Well liked by his team.
Wanted to be Green Beret but Mom begged him not to.
Joined the Army on the Buddy System.
Bob Roten was one of two of his best friends. Bob came home with schrapnel in his legs. Mike was MIA/KIA. Suppose to have been leading a recon mission. I wonder if anyone is still here from that group.
