Our fathers were both railroad engineers. We lived a block from one another, and were inseparable as friends, with many, many adventures. I went into the Navy and he into the Marines and we never saw each other again. I was part of a night unrep in the South China Sea when I got the letter that he had been KIA. It has never ended for me!!! Bruce

I was his company XO in D/1/3
I was Larry's XO in Delta 1/3 in September 1966. I didn't know him well, having come to the company only the month before. On the day he was KIA, he had been a member of a patrol that, as I remember, detonated a hand grenade rigged as a booby trap along the side of a trail. One small fragment went between his helmet and his flak jacket and hit him in the back of the head. I had the duty of identifying his body at the morgue. I remember that his squad leader, Sgt. Paul _____, spoke highly of him. Larry was my last casualty before I returned from that tour. Semper Fidelis, Marine! Curt Bruce LtCol of Marines (Retired)
