Roy, You are the Reason I'm in Richmond, I forgive you for that But I do Cherish, the time you served as my Plt. Sgt. in The 2nd. ID, Camp Casey Korea. And the Day I saw you at Ft Eustis Va. when I was instructing Honeycomb and Rotor Blade Repair. Roy you told me "Come and See Me when you get out" Which I did with Joe Morales's Help. I was hired and reported for work at the depot on Sept 7,1994. the last time I saw you, I was headed for Keenland and you pulled up beside me in a Tractor Trailer and Blew you air horn and waved and had a big grin on your face.

Damn Roy as long as I have Known you, I didn't know you were a Hoosier, from that Great State of Indiana.

Good Bye Ole' Friend
... Salute You
