I served with Rell

 My name is Thomas E. Beecherl ,I served with Rell at Fort Knox in Recon training and shipped over to Viet Nam togeather. We were in the same platoon both times HHC 2nd 34th Armor Recon platoon. While still in the same unit I joined the CRIP team and moved around alot. So I was not there when Rell lost his life. He was with his platoon and his friends. While  on a sweeping mission in the jungle
 We Lost several good men that same day and several others were wounded.I always think about Rell  and the others, they will be with me the rest of my life
