My War Stories
  1968 Larry and i first met in a.i.t. at fort Sill ,OK. in 1968. After graduation we were assigned to the 1st battalion 3rd armored cav reg. while there we served on the burial detail and performed our regular duties as artilleryman. In 69 Larry went to KOREA and i thought he went to Nam same as me. Well, i didn't see Larry anymore after that but i did find him a few yrs back but he didn't know who i was so we never saw each other in person. I felt that i had found the right guy even though he kept telling his wife he didn't know me and he had never had been to WA. i kept trying to make contact to no avail. I sent photos of myself to his wife but they did make the connection. I got my mail out of my box on Christmas and his wife sent the photos back along with some of his. It was my friend Larry but it was to late, he passed on 11/11/2010.
