Thank you for messaging me on December 20, 2014.
You have awakened me, by informing me who you are, and the love you had for our Benny.
The large, hot tears are now again running down my face, as they were yesterday, within an instant when I saw the subject of your message.
I fear your message has awakened a sleeping giant within me, filled with joy; from your message received. That is a good thing, because for many years I have not felt the way I feel right now!
With deep respect and honor to you and to our Benny!

|M||RE: Benny Glen Hack|
I just received your findagrave.com message. My message to you, I believe was a very long time ago.
I now am weeping, in such a nostalgic way, for you to have contacted me about Benny, Lance Corporal Bennie Hack.
Bennie was the second member of VMO-6 to die within our squadron. He was a volunteer M-60, machine gun door gunner. Bennie was hit within the first months of our arrival there at Ky Ha, Republic of South Vietnam, about five miles north of the Chu Lai, Vietnam, Marine Corps major air base.
I was in the position to know about everything that went on within VMO-6, as I was in administration, taking care of personnel jackets (records). I had just gotten to VMO-6 while she was in California. Only six weeks there from Infantry Training, we packed up and headed to Vietnam. Other words, I was as green as green can be.
Instead of continuing this message, would you please send me your private email address. Would love to continue talking to you, but desire to do so through private communication through my email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope you do, as I can tell you a little bit more about our squadron, which is so heroic and about others within the squadron that flew with Bennie.

The above Marine was a door gunner for VMO-6, MAG-36, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, at Ky Ha, Republic of Vietnam.
I should know, as I served with him at the place above.
Two of our Marines were killed-in-action within two days apart, he and the posthumousy promoted, Captain Glenn Dill Mann, on November 25, and 23, respectively.
When I saw LCpl Hack's profile, I knew it was the very same guy I served with in Vietnam. One does not forget the name or the image of one killed in the line of duty.
Thank you for posting his profile.

|Janet Saylor||Robert J Carter|
Hi! Robert J. Carter is in my direct family line. He was in the St Helena Rifles during the CW.
My maternal grandmother was a Carter. Her father was Ray Jameson Carter, buried in the family plot at Live Oak Cem. in Manchaca. Many in the family called in Buda, so I am not sure if the county line changed over time or what. Evelyn Carter, whose father was Ray Jameson was cremated and buried at the foot of her dad's grave. I did put a marker there. Robert Rogers Carter (he went by BR) and Ida Bell Criser were Ray's parents.They are all in Live Oak. Robert J was Robert Roger's father. Robert Rogers, and Robert J were from St Helena. Mary, RJ's wife was from New Orleans, but they married in St Helena. There is no marriage certificate, due to someone probably taking the book. There used to be an exact image online, but no more. I am in Daugh of the American Revolution (I just applied for Isaac Carter), Burrel Carter (just reaplied, lost records), then his son William fought in the CW but I don't have records yet. I am in United Daught of Civil War, and need to put in RJ's papers. Yes! I know the Carters! I live in Lockhart, which is a hop and a jump from Buda! email@example.com We are some kind of cousins!
