** The casualty date is incorrect, it is August 27, 1967, I should know because it just happens to be my birthday. Also Dad was shot down over South China.
You may be gone, no longer living on this earth; but you will live on - in the memories of your family and friends. There will always be a part of you living in those who knew you. You will live on because we remember you!
