I remember you, Rick....I am so sad you didn't get to have an adult life, and so grateful for your service. I will be thinking of you at the reunion.

Rick was one of the wise-guy gang like me. I do remember his frequent and loud laughter. His becoming a Red Jacket does supprise  me. Loseing his life needlessly was like many others we all knew. Sadly remembered.

Thanks for your sacrifice so I am able to live in a country like no other. You may be gone but not forgotten !

Allow me to say a prayer for you @ 12000'.
