When I first arrived at the 8th Army F&AO, I was assigned a room with Dean Cobble. Dean, a Duke Graduate and CPA, and I really related well. I had attended Duke, but chose to move far more quickly. After Dean rotated back to the US, Bob Pierce, a friend from the Finance School took Dean's bunk-space. Bob and I became life-long friends and business partners. Dean and I reconnected just this year (August 2021) after many years of differening careers, cities, etc., but he also knew my brother, Harvie.
