Fellow Bobcat, 1/5, Mech.
Gerald, we just, had a mini reunion here, in Florida, with 15, Bobcats and wives. One, of the Bobcats, there, was your good, friend, in Vietnam, Jack Czill. Jack gave me the picture, of you on the 50, on your APC.. It is the exact spot, where you, were KIA., by an RPG. Then Jack, told me that the day, you were KIA., was also, his Birthday. I called him, today and wished him, a Happy Birthday and thought, of you, when I did. Jack took me, under his wing, when I got, to Nam. I'M sure, Jack is thinking of you, today. Thank you, for your service and sacrafice.

I still love and miss you, my friend. I'll stop by, on your birthday November 11, to say I love you, Lorraine
