RIP my dear cousin and thank you for your service during the Korean War which is called the forgotten war. Having served in the Navy myself for 8 years that makes us brothers. Only met you a few times when i was Younger and remember you as wonderful man who loved to laugh and make others comfortable to be around. Proud to have known you my brother in arms. See you on the other side. Wish i could be there but a recent shoulder surgery has me in daily physical Therapy. God bless your family and may God give your family peace and give them solace during their bereavement. Here is a picture of me when i served in the Navy.
