Kenny it has been so long. I remember when you found that M-1 and cleaned it up. I hope you were able to send it home. Forty-four years have passed since we crossed that paddy together. I just wish we all could have walked away. Believe me brother, you are not forgotten. Larry

I can't believe that we were both in Northern I Corps at the same time and didn't even know it - and now we will never get a chance to meet.
