Posted on 5/21/14 - by James F. Webb  - VVMF: Has anybody here seen my old friend Florian? It seems the good die young. I just turned around and he was gone. I served with Florian in A Company 801 Maint. Bn. of the 101st Airborne. I was with the 426 Supply and Transportation Battalion at Camp Eagle on that night 47 years ago. He may be gone, but he will never be forgotten.
