I am Bryan Thomas Benoit, the brother of Garland Dave Benoit. Me, my sister and friends went to the reunion in Branson, Missouri this year, 2006, and met some of the guys who served with Garland and I must say it was one of the greatest events of my life. Questions were finally answered after all these years and we hope to make other reunions in the future and meet some of the other guys who could not make it.
The day the family received the notice of Garland's death was a day I was home sick from school and if I could draw a picture it would be perfect. I remember every detail from the furniture I was laying on to the weather outside.
Thanks to all the men who helped Garland. Please feel free to email me for anything I may help with.From his brother,
Bryan T. Benoit
