Roomie, from 3/67 - 12/67
This was a good kid, very bright and wickedly funny. While no one, deserved, to die, or get hurt over there, "Bakes" was, the one guy, who should have, never been killed. He didn't, have a mean bone, in his body. He didn't even, "visit" the girls, in the ville, as he thought, it degraded them. He spent, a lot of time talking, with various Vietnamese, studying them, learning the language and customs and was probably fluent, by the time, of his death. I often think, of the time, spent with him and how his arrival, picked my head up, from the first. Just looking, at this tall, skinny kid, from Texas, by way of L.A., or vice versa, with that smirk and that, silly little moustache, you just knew, he was all right. He was good, under fire too, never panicky, or really scared. When I got the letter, informing me of his death, I spun into, an angry sadness, that I still, feel every time, I think of him. Such a waste. He'd have been, 57, on his next birthday. I was there, helping him celebrate, his 24th and final one, in 1967. My thoughts are, still with him, with his parents and with his little sister, Ruthie, who sent us a bunch, of "Scrooge McDuck," comics, for a goof. Such a waste, the whole thing, was such, a waste.

For A1C/E-3, Kenneth Baker and all those, who knew him and loved him, I just want to say thank you, for your dedication and sacrifice! Please know, that you have, not been forgotten and always will hold a special place, in my heart! It would have been nice, to have known you, as a person and I greatly, appreciate your service! I just wish, you did not have to pay, so, high a price! You forever will, be a hero, in my eyes!
