Stories

My name is Marv. I went to school in Fredonia,NY with Gary. I joined the AF

in1966. Gary went Army. I saw Gary in Nam in '68 at the PX. The next day

the Army brought his body to the flight line to be shipped to Saigon. I could

not believe it. Me and another airman loaded his body on the plane. There

is a story to tell here, but not enough space. I would be glad to tell it if

anyone else is interested. I always go to see Garys name on the Moving

Wall when it comes to AZ. I have been to the wall in Washington. I think

I'll leave it at that for now.
