Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. “He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!

I had, flown with him. I was with him, the night, before this crash. I was, friends with him. I cleared them, for takeoff. I was, an air traffic controller, at tay ninh and I often flew, with Centaurs, almost daily, when i wasn't, in the tower. He had invited me, to go, I was, not able. If Mcallister, Stanley, or Carnathan, of Centaurs, reads this, contact me. He was, a good guy. We were, just kids then. He was never afraid, that I knew of.

Today is July 4th, 2001. I was there they day you were listed as missing. I was there the day we found the crash site. We went out to bring you and McGlothlin home. Looked for Elliott, but could not find him. Don't know what happened for sure. Have thought about you every day since then. You were a good friend. Miss all the good times. You were a true "Light Scout". From, SP5 David Atkinson, DTrp, 3rd Sqd., 4th Cav., 25th Inf. Div., a fellow "Light Scout".
