Comments/Citation
Michael was a dear and gentle young man.  A man who enjoyed the simple things in life; the drive-in movies on Saturday night and working on his silver Mustang.  Like many others, he never got the chance to know what he wanted to be "when he grew up."  Mike was killed six months after arriving in SVN at the age of 20.

Please take a moment to remember him.  Mike's name is on Panel 28W - Row 073.

From an anonymous high school friend.
