Sender Message Bill Swazuk Information Related to your TWS Remembrance Profile #72337      Hi I am writing my brothers obit, he died yesterday Robert S Swazuk (we think agent orange).
Bob was David's radioman. David asked my brother not to take point which he was about to do. David asked if he could take it for him. Within a few seconds, David stepped in front of my brother Bob and a 50 cal. shell hit David in the head. Bob thought of David his whole life and we know if not for him, Bob would have been dead. Bob always spoke well of him.

H.S. freind & classmate Knew Dave not as well as I should have. Actually, I heard that he went to Vietnam twice to serve heroically. I'm sure he never feared his outcome.

  A Loyal and Trusting Friend Posted for: DAVID LEONARD UGLAND: It was a most happy day when David moved into our Page Neighborhood in 5th grade and when I saw his West Point graduation in 1964. Many memorable times in between, from the simple to the crazy! Our regular correspondence throughout college and into his tour in Viet Nam was fun and valued. There has been a big hole in my life, since David gave his life
for our Country in 1965! I have missed my friend a great deal!
I thank God for 14 years of a terrific friendship! Posted by: Dick Swenson
