We were in B Company together at San Marcos Academy (SMA) and I remember him from those days where students formed a special bond. I saw him a few times since but we lost contact over the years I am sad to say. Sounds like he had a nice life, especially after Viet Nam days. I will miss him, GOD SPEED,
