Stories

Billy and I grew up together and were close friends. We attended the same High School, and played sports together. We had a large circle of friends, but only a few of us actually served in the military. I was a Drill Instructor at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri when I learned of Billy's death. I was honored to be his personal escort and fly his remains home for the funeral and burial. He was a great friend and soldier and he will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace, my friend.
