Kathy, So sorry about Ben. Ben and I grew up together in Sugarcreek. I have many fond memories. As you know he was unique in many ways, but one of the nicest guys you would ever meet. Tom Andreas, Hilton Head, SC

Got to know Benny on Crete also but came to find out through our Charlie Flight connection he grew up in Sugar Creek, Oh. Less than 20 miles from where I grew up. Small World. Prayers!

I got to really know Benny at the "Charlie Flight" reunions held in St. Louis. He and I had been stationed together on the Greek island of Crete while serving in the U.S. Air Force. Benny was smart, funny, and articulate. My last memory of him will always be of us sipping Metaxa (a Greek brandy) together at the "Charlie Flight" reunions. Rest In Peace my fellow "Silent Warrior".
